Honolulu City Council District 5
INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Longtime City Councilmember Ann Kobayashi is “terming out,” leaving an open seat in Honolulu City Council District 5. This race is to represent the district’s wide range of neighborhoods, each with its own identity – from high rises in newly developed Kakaʻako to historic homes in Mānoa and St. Louis Heights. Small businesses dot Kaimukī and Mōʻiliʻili, while Ala Moana encompasses the world’s largest open-air shopping center. Three candidates, attorney Philmund Lee, State Representative Calvin Say and community activist Dave Watase are vying for the votes of a diverse group of constituents. Join the live discussion with the candidates on INSIGHTS.
