Bob Vieira was one of 10 candidates in the nonpartisan Honolulu City Council race for District 6. District 6 covers a portion of Makiki, Downtown Honolulu, Punchbowl, Liliha, Pauoa Valley, Nuuanu, Alewa Heights, Papakolea, Kalihi Valley and some of Kalihi.
In the Sept. 18 primary election, Vieira came 7th in the race, getting 699 votes, or 2.9 percent. The winner in the primary was Tamayo with 6,467 votes, or 26.8 percent. Moepono was the runner-up with 3,956 votes, or 16.4 percent. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, Tamayo and Moepono will advance to the general election on Nov. 2.
Vieira ran again for the District 6 seat in the 2012 election against 15 other candidates. He lost with less than one percent of the vote.
