The Honolulu City Council said goodbye to Tulsi Gabbard today and voted to hold a special election that will coincide with the Nov. 6 general election.
Not long after, three people threw their names into the running to take over for Gabbard’s seat.
Both Vieira and Kapuniai have experience running for office. Vieira unsuccessfully ran for the District 6 council seat in 2010. Kapuniai lost in the Aug. 11 primary for a seat in the state House of Representatives.
I’m sure we’ll see several more candidate emerge between now and the Aug. 31 candidate filing deadline.
