Live Blog Election 2014: Honolulu City Council Districts 4 and 6

On the next Insights on PBS Hawaii, host Mahealani Richardson talks with the top two contenders for Honolulu City Council District 4 and District 6, who now face a run-off election in the General on November 4. The candidates in District 4, Tommy Waters and Trevor Ozawa, are vying to represent the area from East Honolulu to Waikiki, a district left without an incumbent after Stanley Chang launched his unsuccessful bid for U.S. Congress. In District 6, incumbent Carol Fukunaga and challenger Sam Aiona are running to represent the area including Makiki, Punchbowl and Kalihi. The candidates share why the feel they are the most qualified to represent their districts, and discuss traffic, homelessness, development and other issues facing their communities.
