About Our Writers
This is HONOLULU Magazine’s take on politics. We know our readers are smart, savvy people who vote. Of course, we'll follow the issues, the players and the money. But we'll also keep an eye out for the quirkier stuff: Who's winning the yard-sign wars, campaign survival tips; and check out the food and the fashion on the campaign trail. The section is edited by HONOLULU Magazine editor Robbie Dingeman, a political junkie who has covered Hawaii state, county and federal politics for more than 25 years at two daily newspapers and one television newsroom.
Loren Moreno joined the staff of HONOLULU Magazine as senior writer after his recent return from New York City, where he earned a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing. He previously covered Hawaii public education and local politics during his five years with The Honolulu Advertiser. More from Loren »
