City Councilman Stanley Chang today announced his candidacy for Congress.
Chang, who represents East Honolulu on the Council, will run for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District (urban Honolulu).
The current officeholder, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, is expected to run for U.S. Senate against Democratic incumbent Brian Schatz.
Because Chang’s Council term expires next year, he is giving up that seat at the end of the term in order to run for Congress.
