Councilwoman Kobayashi

Ann Kobayashi claimed victory in the special election held on Friday for Honolulu City Council District V. In what turned out to be a short, but highly expensive election, Kobayashi received 37.5% of the vote to win. Ann Kobayashi previously held the same seat before vacating it to run against Mayor Mufi Hannemann in 2008.

Former State Senator Matt Matsunaga finished second, having lost by about 1,300 votes.

Congratulations to the former-and-newly-elected Councilwoman Kobayashi.
