Kahala facility to become Cecil L. Heftel Post Office


The Kahala Post Office would become the Cecil L. Heftel Post Office Building under a bill passed unanimously Thursday by the U.S. Senate and sent to President Barack Obama for consideration.

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa sponsored the bill that changes the name of the post office at 4354 Pahoa Ave. to honor Heftel, who died in 2010 and served five terms in Congress.

"I am very pleased that we were able to honor the tremendous career of Cecil Heftel," said Hanabusa, D-Hawaii. "He was an extraordinary businessman and a visionary who always placed the public, the people, and his constituents first."
