New Lawmaker Facing Resignation Issue

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A pair of newly elected lawmakers are facing a tough choice in the wake of their wins. As University of Hawaii system employees, they must now resign from their posts due to a contractual policy.

Democratic State Representative-elect Jarrett Keohokalole says he'll do so without question, or regret.

"It was tough but, we went into it with our eyes open" he said.

Keohokalole worked as a legal fellow for UH Manoa, advising a group working on invasive species prevention.

"I'm a new legislator, there's a lot that I need to learn to make sure I'm doing the job right. In fairness to the folks at UH and the people working on invasive species issues, they don't need a half time guy, they need a guy who's full time" he continued.
