Senator Gabbard presented Honorary Certificates, along with Rep. Har, to Waianae Coast residents in recognition of the 30th Anniversary of the “Live and Let Live Campaign” for their contribution in founding it, in order to promote safe driving during the holidays. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard presented remarks (via her staff) to the three honorees as well. Through the efforts of Ret. Lieutenant Francis Kealoha Kamakawiwo`ole, Bella Oclinaria, and Police Chaplain Wynn Warner, the “Live and Let Live” campaign has drawn national attention and now includes sign waving on all the major thoroughfares on the Leeward Coast spanning from Ewa Beach, Kapolei, Makakilo, Nanakuli, Maili, Waianae, and Makaha. There’s also a poster contest which includes all the schools in the area.
