Hawaii Republican leaders seem more focused on their own survival than revitalizing the party.

In this recent article from Civil Beat entitled, Victor Craft, a well-respected columnist, wrote this about Shirlene;
"But there is hope. Recently, a young and vibrant woman, born and raised in Mililani and who has proved her mettle, is taking a stance and is running for the chairmanship of the party leadership. She is retired Air Force Colonel Shirlene Dela Cruz Ostrov. Yet she faces the good old boy network whose center is self preservation. This policy is proving to be self-destructive. Just count the number of Republicans in the state house and senate."
"It is my sincere hope that in the coming election for the party’s chairmanship, games are not played and those who have held the power in the party recognize the need for change. I would ask them to step aside and allow a fresh breeze to blow through the party and revitalize it. If they don’t, they just might be out of a job by default."
