Housel announces possible run for State House seat

The following announcement was made Tuesday, Jan. 10 by Fred Housel:

There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the outcome of the State Reapportionment Plan.

One thing that is certain is West Hawaii deserves strong representation on the Hawaii State House.

I am announcing my intention to file to be a candidate for House District 6 in the State House of Representatives.

One caveat: This could possibly change pending the final Reapportionment outcome.

If I become a candidate for office, then it will be necessary for me to step back from being president of Community Enterprises, although I will remain a member.

Sherry Eischen, Boardmember, has graciously stepped forward to lead Community Enterprises, which hosts the monthly Kona Town Meeting program.
