Honolulu Council District 3 Candidates on the Issues
Ikaika Anderson was first elected more than three years ago to finish the term of the late Barbara Marshall, for whom he'd worked for years. Now, Anderson's looking for his first full four-year term as a City Council member.
In his way are two lesser-known candidates — Deborah Bossley and Chad Kaukani. Where do the three hopefuls stand on the key issues facing Honolulu?
The survey asked the candidates to explain their positions on 10 major issues facing the city, including rail, landfills and taxes. You can find links to the candidates' full responses at the bottom of this article.
Our candidate questionnaire sheds some light on two of the candidates — Anderson and Kaukani.
Bossley provided her email address to Civil Beat, but never acknowledged receipt, never turned in her responses and did not return phone messages. Her candidate organizational report filed with the Campaign Spending Commission identifies her as a member of the American Society of Interior Designers and a mother of three.
Regardless, she's on the ballot, so the race can be decided Aug. 11 if one of the candidates secures more than half of the vote.
