HONOLULU – Trevor Ozawa, Hawaii Kai resident and attorney, officially filed his nomination papers today at Honolulu Hale to fill the Honolulu City Council – District 4 seat. Ozawa hopes to replace Honolulu City Councilmember Stanley Chang, who will vacate his post to run for the U.S. Congress.

“I’m running for the Honolulu City Council because this community needs a thoughtful and passionate leader who understands the everyday issues that families face: from the rising costs of living in paradise to keeping our communities healthy and safe,” said Ozawa.  “My roots are deeply seeded in this district.  Our community deserves to be represented by someone from the district so that we can ensure that this person will continue to be held accountable by friends, family, and neighbors that continue to live, work, and play in East Honolulu.”

A life-long resident of District 4, Ozawa’s priority concerns are the basic infrastructure needs of the district, including potholes and traffic congestion, in addition to sound fiscal policies and government accountability and efficiency.

Ozawa attended Kamiloiki Elementary before attending Kamehameha Schools – Kapalama. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Southern California and thereafter received his law degree from Suffolk University Law School.  Ozawa currently practices law at Clay Chapman Iwamura Pulice & Nervell.
