Press Releases >> Council Vice Chair Ikaika Anderson Files For Re-Election To City Council, District 3

Honolulu, HI –– May 25, 2012 –– Honolulu City Council Vice Chair Ikaika Anderson, with his wife Lisa, and their children at his side, filed papers for re-election today at Honolulu Hale. Also joining Anderson was campaign chair Brooke Wilson, and co-finance chairs Dave Rae and Oswald Stender. Anderson filed for re-election to represent District 3 on the Honolulu City Council, which encompasses Kailua, Kaneohe, Waimanalo and Ahuimanu.

“Ikaika Anderson is without a doubt the next generation of leadership for Hawaii.  He is not only a great representative for the people of Windward Oahu on the City Council, but for all residents of Oahu because he understands how critical it is to our success that all parts of the island work together to meet the challenges we face,” said Dave Rae, co-finance chair for the campaign and business leader.  “Anyone who has the opportunity to watch the City Council in action knows that Ikaika Anderson is a leader on the council who bases his decisions and actions on doing his homework and talking to his community.”

The State of Hawaii Organization of Police Officers (SHOPO) union has endorsed Council Vice Chair Ikaika Anderson in the race for re-election to the Honolulu City Council, District 3.

“I would be extremely honored to represent the Windward side of Oahu on the City Council for a second term,” said Anderson.  “As I have for the past three years, I vow to continue to listen to the concerns and suggestions of my constituents, and with their collective wisdom, seek the best solutions to move our community forward.  The Windward side is a very special place, and I believe that it’s key that we continue to find a balance between progression and preserving its rural appeal, for both residents and visitors.  It’s my humble hope that I can represent District 3 on the Honolulu City Council once again.”

Ikaika has dedicated his career to public service in both State and City positions.  During the past nine years that Ikaika has served the City government (both as a staff member to the late Council Chair Barbara Marshall and now as a councilmember representing District 3), his office has partnered with the community towards great progress.  For the past seven years, Ikaika has also acted as the Honolulu City Council liaison for the City Council Agricultural Development Task Force.  As a lifelong resident of the Windward side, Ikaika strives to work together with individuals, families and businesses of District 3 to guide him in making the best decisions for the community.  His vision for Windward Oahu is a thriving community that is safe, clean, sustainable, and affordable; and one that meets its issues head-on, and works efficiently and fairly to see that solutions are implemented.
