The Legislative Action Committee interviewed four candidates for the State House of Representatives. Three are first time candidates and one is a second time candidate. The LAC recommended with the Executive Committee approval that UHPA endorse all four candidates.
- Andrew Garrett, House District 22
- Darius Kila, House District 44
- Rachele Lamosao, House District 36
- Jenna Takenouchi, House District 27
The LAC was impressed with these candidates and their understanding of both academic concerns of faculty as well as the economic concerns of the University. They did their homework prior to the interview by preparing to respond to the House Candidate Questionnaire provided them by the LAC. This included the importance of our Community Colleges.
UHPA continues to endorse Speaker Scott Saiki, Gregg Takayama, Della Au Belatti and Stacelynn Eli. Their strong support for UHPA faculty is greatly appreciated.
