Samuel Wilder King II has announced his entry in to the race for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (“OHA”) Trustee At-Large seat. The position, which is elected on a statewide basis, will have a significant impact on the future of OHA as it begins to resolve the problems brought on by discoveries in the recent audit.

“It is distressing that OHA has not taken sufficient action with respect to the audit and the CEO. 

"Native Hawaiians, and all the people of Hawai`i, deserve an Office of Hawaiian Affairs dedicated to solving the bread and butter issues of indigenous Hawaiians – better housing, better jobs, better healthcare, and the celebration and preservation of Hawaiian culture,” said Mr. King in making the announcement.

“For the benefit of all the people of Hawai`i, OHA must return to the purity of its mission, as an organization that truly serves the Hawaiian community. I humbly ask for your vote for Trustee At-Large as we work together for a better OHA and a better Hawai`i.”
