New City Council Districts for 2022 Election

Due to redistricting, please note that the boundaries of the various Honolulu City Council districts will be changing significantly this election cycle. See the following maps below (you can click the images for larger versions).

The Waimalu/Kalauao/ʻAiea/Halawa region is currently separated into three council districts:

  • District 6 – upper ‘Aiea/Halawa east of Kalauao Stream, currently represented by Councilmember Carol Fukunaga
  • District 7 – lower Halawa south of Aloha Stadium, currently represented by Councilmember Radiant Cordero
  • District 8 – lower ʻAiea makai of H-1 freeway/Ulune Street, Pearlridge, Waimalu, Newtown, currently represented by Councilmember Brandon Elefante

Beginning with the upcoming 2022 election, the region will be separated into two council districts:

  • District 7 – Halawa, Aiea east of Kalauao Stream, lower Pearlridge (makai of H-1 Freeway). This seat is not up for election in 2022 and will be represented by Councilmember Radiant Cordero through 2024.
  • District 8 – upper Pearlridge (mauka of H-1 freeway), Waimalau, Newtown. This seat is up for election in 2022.

The boundary between the two districts can be seen in the map below. District 8 is at left in green; district 7 is at right in orange.

An interactive version of the new council boundaries is available online.

RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE 2022 COMMUNITY HEROES AWARDS

Honolulu, Hawai‘i – The recipients of the 2022 Community Heroes Awards have been announced today by Kanu Hawai‘i and the Offices of Senator Bennette E. Misalucha (Senate District 16), Representative Nadine Nakamura (House District 14), and Representative Lisa Kitagawa (House District 48). The announcement was made in conjunction with Volunteer Week Hawai‘i, a weeklong celebration that coincides with National Volunteer Week which occurs every year by Presidential Proclamation since 1974.

The recipients of this year’s awards program are:

  • Karen Higa (Senate District 16, ‘Aiea resident)
  • Larry Veray (Senate District 16, Pearl City resident)
  • Ron Garrison (House District 14)
  • Mahealani Cypher (House District 48)

“The four recipients selected for this year’s Community Heroes Awards are true public servants within their communities, all of whom have had a lasting impact on the lives of so many,” said Keone Kealoha, Executive Director of Kanu Hawai‘i. “Their commitment to be the change they wish to see for their fellow neighbors, to do the hard work of selflessly serving others, to transform challenging situations into resilient communities – has all not gone unnoticed and we are happy to help recognize these inspirational community leaders from across Hawai‘i.”

“When we started the Community Heroes Awards program, I hoped to recognize the many unsung heroes who made my district a better place to be,” said Senator Misalucha, who created and spearheaded the awards program for the past two years. “It has been wonderful to be joined by Representative Kitagawa and Representative Nakamura in expanding the awards to show the wide reach and impact these outstanding volunteers have had in making our beloved communities a better place to work, live, play, and thrive.”

“The Community Heroes Awardees have shown dedication and commitment to their communities. They inspire all of us to give back to our communities and collectively thank them for their service,” said Representative Nakamura.

“Our shared communities have proven how much heart there is in our volunteers across the state,” said Representative Kitagawa. “Our awardees are a true inspiration and we hope this recognition sparks a light in others to serve with compassion and a joy for service.”

The recipients will be recognized at a virtual awards ceremony on Saturday, April 16, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Each recipient will receive an Honorary Certificate from their respective legislator. To attend the event, go to: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83616968675.

The Community Heroes Awards honors and recognizes residents who have exemplified outstanding leadership and volunteer service to their community. Kanu Hawai‘i administered the selection process and chose the panel of esteemed judges to decide on the recipients from each district. Judging was based on a set of criteria including the effectiveness, scope, and amount of time dedicated to their volunteer efforts.
