INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Honolulu City Prosecutor
State Senate District 13
Two attorneys are vying to represent the people of O‘ahu in criminal prosecutions. In this nonpartisan race, incumbent Honolulu City Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro faces challenger Anosh Yaqoob, who says he’s proud that he’s not an “insider” and doesn’t want to see another incumbent run unopposed.
Meanwhile, Honolulu Democrat Rep. Karl Rhoads is seeking to move up to the State Senate seat that’s being vacated by longtime Sen. Suzanne Chun-Oakland. He is scheduled to appear with Libertarian candidate Harry Ozols, a retired pilot. Democrat-turned-Republican Rod Tam, a former state lawmaker and City Councilmember who pleaded guilty to spending improprieties, is also in the running. He declined to take part in this forum. Senate District 13 includes part of Downtown Honolulu, Nu‘uanu and Liliha.
