Anderson campaign moves
to larger spaces

Gubernatorial candidate Andy Anderson said his campaign has outgrown its Kakaako headquarters and is relocating to a new site today in Moiliili.

Anderson will officially open his new headquarters in what used to be a First Hawaiian Bank branch in the Varsity Building, 1110 University Ave.

His previous headquarters was located on the grounds of the Kewalo Holy Ghost Church, where parking was a problem for campaign volunteers.

Mililani junior turns page

Mililani High School junior Leandra Wilson has been appointed a page in the U.S. House of Representatives.

House pages are part-time messengers in the U.S. Capitol complex. They attend regular high school classes and live in a dormitory near the Capitol.

Wilson is the daughter of Richard and Kathy Wilson. She has a 3.833 grade point average and performs in the school's marching and symphonic band. Wilson also took college courses for high school and college credit as part of the Running Start program.

"She's one of Hawaii's outstanding young people, and being a page is a wonderful opportunity for an up-close learning experience at the heart of our national government," said U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Urban Honolulu), who submitted Wilson's name to the Democratic leadership for the appointment.

Pages are selected from applicants who are entering their junior year of high school, have at least a 3.0 GPA in core subjects, submit three letters of recommendation and will be 16 by the start of the program.

The program begins Sept. 1. Pages are paid a $1,344 monthly salary.
