When political opportunity knocks, candidates answer the door.

In an election year with several vacancies, term limits in some county races and an upswing in the state economy, opportunities abound for potential officeholders, political observers say.

"When someone is toying with the idea of entering politics and getting back into politics, they are saying, 'What is the best way for me to get in?'" said Jim Wang, University of Hawaii-Hilo political science professor emeritus and an author on Hawaii politics.

At the filing deadline yesterday, several interesting races and trends have emerged, while 13 state legislators -- both Republicans and Democrats -- are running unopposed and will need only one vote to win re-election.

Several candidates are playing musical seats. An example is Donna Mercado Kim resigning from her Honolulu Council seat to run for the state Senate slot being vacated by Senate President Norman Mizuguchi, which paves the way for state Rep. Romy Cachola to run for Kim's Council seat.

A number of past politicos are looking to recycle their candidacies into different offices.

For example, former state Sen. Donna Ikeda filed to run for one of three at-large Board of Education seats.

"It's a very unique election," said Republican Party Chairwoman Linda Lingle while hosting a celebration yesterday at party headquarters for GOP candidates. "It's certainly a time of great opportunity."

Both Wang and Yas Kuroda, University of Hawaii-Manoa political science professor, cited several reasons why this election season is opening doors for those who want to step inside the political ring.

"There's no overriding factor. There are many factors contributing to this phenomenon this year," Kuroda said.

The issue of term limits opened the way for a laundry list of candidates to run for Big Island mayor because current Mayor Steve Yamashiro cannot run again after serving out his allotted two consecutive four-year terms.

'This is a wide-open race'

"In other words, this is a wide-open race, and that usually generates a lot of entries," Wang said.

"When terms are up, they can no longer serve in that capacity," Kuroda said. "This gives people who are interested a way of going back into politics."

Kuroda also suspects that candidates are attracted to public office because of better economic times, which translate into more tax dollars that elected officials can spend.

"Nobody wants to go into politics when there's nothing to give out," Kuroda quipped. "That way, they always say, 'We did it.' And so they stay in office."

Having a race with no incumbent is also a carrot to political newcomers and comeback kids.

Three state senators are retiring from the Legislature. There is also no incumbent in six House races.

Three Board of Education members have also decided not to run for re-election. Two are seeking other offices, and at-large board member Noemi Pendleton, a GOP state party official and wife of Republican state Rep. David Pendleton, is not running for the board or any other office.

Vacant seats coupled with the Republican Party's work to bolster the number of GOP candidates are the party's best opportunities to win, Lingle said.

"It's always difficult to unseat an incumbent, regardless of party. ... Vacant seats help us a lot," Lingle said.

Many to run unopposed

However, Republicans were not able to field a challenger in Mililani where Sen. Randy Iwase resigned to take an appointment to the labor appeals board.

Former Rep. Ron Menor, who was appointed by the governor to replace Iwase, will run unopposed.

Other state lawmakers with no opponent are Sens. Suzanne Chun-Oakland (D, Liliha) and Norman Sakamoto (D, Moanalua), Democratic Reps. Dwight Takamine (Hamakua), Eric Hamakawa (South Hilo, Puna), Nathan Suzuki (Aliamanu), Nestor Garcia (Waipahu) and K. Mark Takai (Waimalu); and Republican House members Barbara Marumoto (Waialae-Kahala), Bertha Leong (Niu Valley), Jim Rath (North Kona) and Cynthia Thielen (Kailua).

One of the more heated primary races will be between incumbent Republican Sen. Whitney Anderson vs. fellow party member and former state Rep. Fred Hemmings in Windward Oahu.

Meanwhile, there will be one less candidate in the Republican primary for the congressional seat now held by Democrat Rep. Neil Abercrombie. At the filing deadline yesterday, same-sex marriage opponent Mike Gabbard decided to withdraw from the race.

Gabbard said he wants to help other pro-family candidates get elected.

They include his wife, Carol, and son, Ryan, who are running for the Board of Education.


Mayoral candidates’
troops take to streets

By Gordon Y. K. Pang

Tapa

Showboating and one-upmanship marked the first official day of the Honolulu mayor's race, with supporters of both Mayor Jeremy Harris and challenger Mufi Hannemann trying to outdo one another.

Harris, after filing in the morning for the office he's held since 1994, gave a pep talk to a crowd of about 200 in front of Honolulu Hale and had a supporter release painted pigeons into the sky.

"Everywhere you look, things are getting better," Harris said.

Supporters then began searching for the blue lunch wagon dishing out free stew-and-rice plates.

In the afternoon, Hannemann arrived at City Hall to sign his nomination papers with a group of supporters aboard a trolley that repeatedly played the theme to "Rocky."

Hannemann, who only hours before officially resigned his Council seat, teased supporters in the clerk's office. "We can still change our minds!" he shouted, as his troops urged him on.

Harris supporters tried to place more sign wavers along King Street than Hannemann's troops before the challenger's scheduled appearance in the afternoon.

By the time Hannemann stepped out of the clerk's office and back onto the street, the sign-waving war was under way with more than 200 supporters in each camp waving away.

Harris supporters, taking advantage of the power of incumbency, had pickup trucks filled with signs and bottled water blocking the Ewa entrance to the City Hall driveway through much of the afternoon.

Hannemann's troops created their own traffic impediment as their trolley blocked the remaining diamondhead entrance to City Hall, as well as the left lane of King Street.

Joe Magaldi, city deputy transportation director, showed no mercy for Hannemann supporters and ordered that they take down signs that they had leaned against the Honolulu Hale fountain.

Still, there were lighter moments under the scorching heat. The candidates shook hands with sign wavers, both their own and their opponents'. And the bottled water was offered to sign wavers from both sides of the fence.

Former Mayor Frank Fasi filed his nomination papers last week.

Five others are seeking the Honolulu mayor's seat, including unsuccessful 1996 candidates Lillian Hong of Salt Lake and Bruce Bellows of Haleiwa.

The others are Michael Powers of Manoa, Larry Hitchcock of Kailua and Richard Johnson aka DICKYJ of Waianae.

Under the City Charter, any of the candidates could win the election outright by receiving 50 percent of the votes plus one vote in the Sept. 23 primary election.

Otherwise, the two top vote-getters will advance to a runoff election to be held Nov. 7, general election day.


Neighbor isle
contenders jockey
for positions

Star-Bulletin Staff

Tapa

Neighbor island elections promise some hot contests this year.

On Kauai, the return of Kaipo Asing to the political arena promises some sweaty palms for the incumbent County Council members. All seven are running for re-election and Asing, the former dean of the council, is viewed as the most viable challenger.

An Asing victory also will guarantee major headaches for Mayor Maryanne Kusaka. Two years ago, as a backer of opponent Mary Thronas, Asing hurled charges of mismanagement at the mayor.

The Big Island mayor's race is seen as one of the most interesting in the state because it is the last partisan mayor's race and there are at least five serious contenders among the 13 listed candidates.

Shaking up the picture is Harry Kim -- a Republican and former Civil Defense director -- considered a strong candidate because he spent 24 years talking to residents on the radio about lava flows and other civil defense issues.

On Maui, major election contests are developing in two nonincumbent state races and in a fight for the Kahului Council seat occupied by Democratic incumbent Mike Davis.

Businessman Alan M. Arakawa wants to regain that seat, which he gave up two years ago to run for mayor as a Republican.

Arakawa, 48, served two terms on the Council and lost the mayor's race to Democrat James Apana.

Arakawa has criticized the increase in park facility fees in the county.

Davis, 56, vice chairman of the Council Parks Committee, said he plans to lower the fees in next year's budget. He acknowledges he has an election fight on his hands.

"It's going to be a tough one," Davis said.

Also running for the Kahului seat is Thomas S. Sipiora, 70, who wants to see more services for the elderly and youths.

On Kauai, also high on Kusaka's worry list will be Council candidate John Barretto, who served on the Council from 1982 to 1986 when he launched a failed attempt to become mayor. Since she took office six years ago, Barretto has been a harsh and vocal critic of Kusaka.

A total of 17 candidates are vying for the seven Council seats, a field so crowded it appears to guarantee a runoff in the general election.

Meanwhile, Republicans -- who fielded a candidate for every office two years ago -- were able to recruit challengers in only two of the three state House districts all or partly on Kauai.

Kauai's only free ride goes to Prosecuting Attorney Michael Soong, who for four years has maintained a low public profile and cordial relationships with both the police chief and the presiding judge.

On the Big Island, some question Kim's ability to bring money to the county, a view that could favor Republican opponent Harvey Tajiri, who had years of experience securing funds in the Legislature .

Among Democrats, Rep. Bob Herkes also knows the government ropes, a strength his opponent, physician Fred Holschuh, is trying to match by talking about his lobbying efforts in the Legislature.

Green candidate Keiko Bonk, a former County Council member, offers a strong environmentalist message expected to appeal to a substantial number of voters.

In a three-way, Democrat-Republican-Green race, only 34 percent of the vote would be needed to capture the mayor's office.

Yet Bonk faces an unexpected challenge from a fellow Green, gun shop owner Buck Wheat. Because Green Party rules require permission for a candidate to run, Wheat's unauthorized candidacy may not survive a possible court challenge.

A major race is developing on Maui in the 5th Senate District, where state Sen. Joseph Tanaka is retiring.

Tanaka, 58, has endorsed Maui Councilman J. Kalani English to succeed him.

English, 33, has served one term on the Council and been vice chairman of the Budget Committee and vice chairman of the planning committee.

He faces two Democratic opponents and one Republican.
