Lisa Kitagawa is another newcomer to the Legislature and UHPA is pleased to endorse her. Although new to the elected side of the legislative process, Lisa has been working at the legislature for Representative Aaron Johnson, Chair of the Labor Committee. Previously Lisa spent 15 years working in various positions at UH and as a member of UHPA; form CTAHR to Leadership Development and as an APT. Lisa’s time with UH provided her with insight to the needs of UHPA faculty in areas of facilities, recruitment, retention and grant funding. Lisa is also up-to-date on Labor issues that are before the Hawai‘i Labor Relations Board. She understands the struggles of protecting Chapter 89 with the Janus case just around the corner. Lisa’s background will serve her well as an advocate for UHPA and her community. We are excited to endorse Lisa for House District 48.
