HILO — Former Hawaii County Councilwoman Emily Naeole is seeking unemployment benefits after she lost re-election.

Naeole says she submitted an online application Thursday, three days after her final meeting as the council's vice chairwoman.

The former Puna representative told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald she has no income and has been volunteering her time to conduct prayer sessions for women experiencing marital problems.

Former North Kona Councilman Kelly Greenwell, who also lost his re-election bid, says he's not sure if he will apply for unemployment, though he says it sounds like a good idea.

Former Kau Councilman Guy Enriques, who also was defeated, says he won't file for unemployment because he has other job opportunities.
