Election 2014: State House District 51 and State House District 4

 

On the Windward side of Oahu, last year’s special legislative session on same-sex marriage has been a major driver in the general election contest to represent House District 51 (Kailua and Waimanalo). Incumbent Representative Chris Lee, who championed the marriage equality legislation, is being challenged by insurance executive Wayne Hikida, whose opposition to the new law drew him into the political ring.

 

The program’s second half features candidates for House District 4 – Puna on Hawai‘i Island, which was first battered by Hurricane Iselle and is now under threat from lava. Democrat Joy San Buenaventura and Republican Gary Thomas are trying to fill controversial Representative Faye Hanohano’s seat after the incumbent was unseated in the Democratic primary. Daryl Huff moderates both discussions.
