UHPA is endorsing a new comer to the legislature, Dean Hazama who is running for House District 36.  Dean is not new to serving his community or paying attention to the needs of the State.  Dean has served on the Neighborhood Board for 16 years, 8 of them as the Chair.  Dean is in a highly competitive race, no incumbent and five other candidates. Dean demonstrated a vast knowledge of public union’s policy, procedures, roadblocks, and the current Janus v AFSCME case before the US Supreme Court.  He was also well informed on the issues of retention and recruitment at the University.  These are but a few of the reasons UHPA believes Dean is the best candidate for House District 36.
