Stanley Chang, the only declared candidate for the House seat being vacated by Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, reported raising $158,000, nearly all of it from individuals, in the last three months.
That brings to $183,000 the amount he’s raised this year, according to campaign disclosure records filed Monday. It leaves the Honolulu City Councilman with $162,000 in the bank to ward off potential opponents.
According to the disclosure records, the bulk of his money came from individuals, including about a dozen who donated the $2,600 limit for the primary election.
Among them were Bert A. Kobayashi Jr. and Ian MacNaughton, managing partners and co-founders of BlackSand Capital.
Among other prominent names: Donald Horner, retired CEO of First Hawaiian Bank, gave $1,500 this period, bringing to $2,600 the total he’s given Chang this year. Melvin Kaneshige, executive vice president of Outrigger Hotels & Resorts, also gave Chang $2,600 this reporting period.
The only PAC money he’s received thus far is $1,000 from State of Hawaii Organization of Police Officers and another $1,000 from the real estate company, Alexander & Baldwin Inc.
