INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Maui County Council – Moloka‘i / State Senate District 25

 

 

With an unemployment rate of more than 15 percent, the GMO ban would hit Moloka‘i the hardest. Maui County Council incumbent Stacy Crivello and challenger Keani Rawlins- Fernandez discuss how they plan to boost employment opportunities for Moloka‘i residents.

 

State District 25 Senator Laura Thielen and her Republican challenger, Robert Nagamine, are featured during the show’s second half.

State Senate District 19 / O‘ahu Charter Amendment 15

 

During the first half of this INSIGHTS, four-term West O‘ahu incumbent Senator Will Espero is scheduled to face outspoken community activist Kurt Fevella. Improving education and cooling classrooms are top District 19 issues. “I don’t just hear about the problems in ‘Ewa – I live them,” says Fevella.

 

Then on the show’s second half, we ask: How long should the Honolulu Mayors, City Council members and the Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney be allowed to serve? We’ll look at the pros and cons of term extensions and term limits on proposed O‘ahu Charter Amendment 15.
