Gabbard Resignation Announcment Coming Soon

·By civilbeat

Democratic Congressional District 2 candidate Tulsi Gabbard told Civil Beat she will decide her future on the Honolulu City Council next week.

Inside Honolulu reports:

Gabbard won the Democratic nomination in Saturday’s primary after handily beating presumed early favorite Mufi Hannemann.

“I’m looking at my options now and my decision will be whatever is best for taxpayers,” Gabbard said in a statement. “I hope to make the decision by next week at the latest.”

If Gabbard resigns, the city would need to hold a special election. The costs of a special election, however, can be avoided if she steps down sooner
