New Leadership for the House Minority Caucus
February 01, 2017
The Hawaii House Minority Caucus has changed its leadership, electing Representative Andria Tupola (District 43 – Ewa Villages, Kalaeloa, Honokai Hale, Nanakai Gardens, Ko Olina, Kahe Point, Nanakuli, Lualualei, Maili) as Minority Leader and Representative Gene Ward (District 17 – Hawaii Kai, Kalama Valley) as Minority Floor Leader.
“We thank Representative Fukumoto for her service to the caucus. However, we believe that it is time for the minority to take a new direction.”
“There is a lot our caucus agrees on, and I look forward to highlighting the strength of each member, helping them champion the issues important to them. I look forward to serving our caucus and bringing our voice to the forefront of the conversation addressing of our State’s rising cost of living, increase in homelessness, unfunded liabilities, and many other quality of life issues.”
“We need to rise to the occasion and gather with every department, legislator, union, business, or community member that is willing to work towards positive change.”
