Hirono Makes Maui Rounds: Visits Kipahulu and Molokai

US Senator Mazie Hirono made several stops on Maui and Molokai this week as part of a statewide visit to meet with constituents and participate in cultural, commemorative, and educational events.

During her Maui stop, Senator Hirono met with diverse students, including those from Molokai Middle School, student-veterans at Maui College, and DREAM Act students on Maui.
