Representative Kymberly Pine released the following statement regarding the Reapportionment Commission's newest district map proposal
News Release from Rep Kym Pine (R-Ewa)
"While I am one of the lucky ones who still has a favorable district boundary, I am extremely concerned by the rushed process that took place to determine the next decade of leadership in Hawaii. What happened today was the result of a horrible lawsuit that sought to tell our brave men and women in the military that they don't matter to us. From this, a rushed process to make a deadline occurred and the people who lost out were good local people whose communities are split up in ways we would have never imagined."
Representative Pine believes that members of the commission did the best they could with this complicated task but that there is still time to solve this unfortunate situation. She was the only House member to testify to the commission today.
