Democratic Party Selects Three Names to Send to Governor Ige for House District 39 Vacancy

News Release from Hawai'i Democratic Party, Feb 20, 2022

The members of the Oʻahu County Democratic Party’s House District 39 selection body – comprised of the party’s precinct officers and district council chair who reside in House District 39 – have selected three names to send to Governor Ige for his consideration to fill the House vacancy created by the resignation of Ty Cullen from the Hawaiʻi State House of Representatives:

● Richard Oshiro, a longtime Waipahu Neighborhood Board member who has worked for the Queen’s Health Systems and at the State Legislature;

● Tesha Malama, the Director of Planning and Development for HCDA in Kalaeloa and current president of the James Campbell High School & Community Foundation; and

● Luella Costales, who works as the Community & Resource Strategy Manager for the Oahu Economic Development Board and previously served on the Honolulu Police Commission;

These three names were chosen from a pool of six total applicants. These three names were formally transmitted to Governor David Ige this afternoon via an electronic letter. The Governor now has until Saturday, April 9 to select one of these individuals to serve as the next State House Representative from House District 39.

“We are proud to send the names of these three individuals to Governor Ige for his consideration,” said Tyler Dos Santos-Tam, Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaiʻi, “Each has proven experience as a grassroots leader and community builder, which will serve the district well at this challenging time. We look forward to Governor Ige’s appointment so that District 39 can have effective representation during this legislative session.”
