INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Honolulu Charter Amendment 7 / State House District 34

 

Should the City and County of Honolulu create an Office of Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency? Oahu residents will be asked to vote on that question which is just one of 20 Charter Amendments on the November ballot. Charter Commission representative Cheryl Soon will debate the merits of Amendment 7 with Libertarian and Downtown Neighborhood Board member Andrew Rothstein.

 

And it’s a 2014 rematch for State House District 34 covering Waimalu, Pearl City and Pacific Palisades. Two-term Democrat Gregg Takayama faces Republican challenger Jaci Agustin. Although Takayama defeated Agustin in the last election by nearly 2,000 votes, this rematch attracted national attention when the Republican State Leadership Committee named the race one of “16 in 16” races to watch across America.
