U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono has chosen a former aide to late U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye to lead her Hawaii staff.

The Democratic senator announced Alan Yamamoto as her state director on Friday.

Yamamoto most recently served as senior legislative assistant for Inouye, who died in December.

Hirono also named 10 additional staff members.

She announced Marvin Buenconsejo as her press secretary and field representative, and Lauren Montez-Hernandez as her military liaison and field representative.

Kehau Yap will serve a dual role as field representative and constituent services manager.

Gerald Ako, Ann Ebesuno, Yuki Lei Sugimura, and Ross Wilson have been named field representatives for neighbor islands.

Additional staff members include Hawaii scheduler Chanel Honda, staff assistant Lauren Ige, and military affairs assistant Walt Kaneakua.
