Election 2014: Maui Mayor and State Senate District 18

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I is closing out its Election 2014 coverage with the contest for Maui Mayor and the three-way race to represent State Senate District 18.

 

The first segment of the show will feature the two candidates for Maui mayor: incumbent Mayor Alan Arakawa and his challenger, Maui County Ocean Safety Officer Tamara Paltin.

Then, we welcome to the table three candidates from Oahu vying to represent Senate District 18 (Mililani, Waikele, Kunia). Raymond Banda (L), incumbent Michelle Kidani (D) and Dennis Kim (R) will present their views about issues facing the Central Oahu area – development, transportation and cost of living – and statewide issues facing our legislators.
