INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Honolulu City Council District 7 / State House District 20

 

In nonpartisan Honolulu City Council District 7 (a sprawling and diverse area of Honolulu with Kalihi at its core), Councilmember Joey Manahan is seeking a second four-year term. His opponent, former state legislative aide Chace Shigemasa, has never held public office and strongly believes incumbents need to be challenged.

 

Then, in State House District 20 (Palolo, Wai‘alae, St. Louis), a longtime incumbent State Representative, former House Speaker Calvin Say (D), is facing his seventh challenge from Republican Julia Allen. She says that with “government literally running off the tracks,” it’s an especially important election, with Republicans very much needed in public office.

Hawai‘i Island Mayor / State House District 44

 

Harry Kim, who previously served two terms as Hawai‘i County’s Mayor, will be returning to the seat, with a 51.6% outright win during last weekend’s Primary Election. Hawai‘i County’s Mayoral race was a crowded one, with 13 candidates vying for the office. Kim is scheduled to appear for this discussion.

 

The show’s second half will focus on State House District 44, covering the Leeward Oahu neighborhoods of Wai‘anae, Makaha and a portion of Ma‘ili. Democratic candidate Cedric Gates beat out incumbent Jo Jordan, the only incumbent to lose her seat during the primary. Gates faces Republican Marc Paaluhi in the General Election. Gates and Paaluhi are scheduled to appear for this candidate discussion.
