Maui County Council – South Maui
Honolulu City Council District 9


INSIGHTS brings together candidates in nonpartisan Council races on two islands. In South Maui, incumbent Don Couch faces business owner Kelly Takaya King. This race is one of several on Maui that could impact just how pro-development the Maui County Council is.


In Central O‘ahu, incumbent District 9 Honolulu City Councilmember Ron Menor and his challenger, Emil Svrcina, have different approaches to the rail transit project. Menor wants to seek different funding sources to lessen taxpayers’ burden; Svrcina wants to cap off the rail at Middle Street. (District 9 covers Waikele, Village Park, Royal Kunia, Mililani Town, West Loch, Iroquois Point and portions of Ewa Villages and Ewa Beach.)
