OHA Trustee Rowena Akana Up for Reelection

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

In next week's general election you will have the opportunity to vote for the next three At-Large Trustees for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA). Leading up to the election Sunrise invites six of the potential trustees into studio to talk about their mission and goals if elected. Today Steve talked to Rowena Akana.

Rowena has been a member of OHA since 1990 and says her first priority if reelected is finalizing development plans for Kakaako. Akana is pro-sovereignty but she believes in order to gain independence for Hawaii, Native Hawaiians must come to a consensus on the plan.
