PRIMARY ELECTION GUIDE




Voted for Mufi Hannemann

Elna Oshiro
Age 22
"My family supports him. I believe he has more experience, which will help him be a mayor, than Bainum."
at Hokulani Elementary

Voted for Duke Bainum

Heinrich Albert
56
"There've been so many cases of illegal contributions from contractors and engineers to Harris' campaign. In the islands, there's been this undue influence from the building trades. My sense is Mufi Hannemann is closely tied to the building trades."
At Hokulani Elementary

Voted for Frank Fasi

Thomas Kobashigawa
85
"I figure he's experienced."
At Hokulani Elementary



Prosecutor

Voted for Keith Kaneshiro

Jayne Hirata-Epstein

Senate District 23 (Kahuku-Kaneohe)

Rochelle Lee

"I agree with all her stands on things. I guess I relate to her as a woman, and I trust her."
at Windward Community college

Voted for Melodie Aduja

Judy Muniz
46
"I feel she's worked really hard. I like the way she's done things, even with the controversial things in the news about her. She didn't let it stand in her way. She's a fighter."
at Windward Community college

Voted for Clayton Hee

Wescott Lee
43
"I think Clayton represents both sides. He's got a lot of experience in local affairs. He's sensitive to native people and he's fair to Hawaiians -- anybody who lives in Hawaii is Hawaiian. He's got roots in Molokai and I'm from Molokai."
at Windward Community college

Pasami Olive
