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.

State Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, who has represented District 13 for 26 years, is retiring at the end of this term, leaving this local race without an incumbent.

The District 13 candidates scheduled to appear in this INSIGHTS discussion: Former State Board of Education member Kim Coco Iwamoto; attorney Keone Nakoa; and current State Rep. Karl Rhoads. They’ll discuss some of the biggest issues affecting the district – especially homelessness – and how they each plan to handle these issues, if elected.
