Who Is Brian Schatz? Meet Hawaii's New U.S. Senator

Chad Blair/ Civil Beat

Brian Schatz has been featured prominently in the pages of Honolulu Civil Beat since our official launch in May 2010.

We've captured him in writing, in digital images and on video, not only during his successful run for lieutenant governor that year but during his two years in office.

As point man for the Abercrombie administration in federal funding and renewable energy policy, Schatz was considered more than just a "bench-warmer" by Neil Abercrombie.

Meet U.S. Senator-appointee Schatz, as seen through the pages of Civil Beat.
