SHOPO Endorses Former Honolulu City Council Chair Ikaika Anderson for Lt. Governor
In the News
In light of the recent corruption charges that have cast a shadow over the Capitol, former Honolulu City Council Chairman Ikaika Anderson is raising questions regarding a state measure that was passed in 2021, benefitting lawmakers who engaged in illegal affairs, on the taxpayers’ dime.
Anderson said he’s running for the position because the state is “crying out” for quick, decisive leadership.
Councilmember sought visitor management as early as 2012, advocating community needs, balancing economic concerns, and fighting administrative delays.
Council member Ikaika Anderson, who represents Kailua, introduced the “No Sundays” proposal in January, 2011. At the time his proposal would have outlawed all commercial activity in all city beach parks on Sundays.
Anderson has revised his “No Sundays” proposal limiting the prohibition on commercial activity to Kailua Beach Park, Kalama Beach Park, and all city owned beach accesses from Lanikai to the Aikahi end of Kailua Beach.
Council Chair pens letter to Governor demanding tougher stance on visitor activity to protect island residents from pandemic.
All nine members of the Honolulu City Council signed a letter urging Gov. David Ige to take stronger steps to isolate the state from outsiders during the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
