HONOLULU, HAWAII – Newly appointed State Representative Heather Haunani Giugni was sworn in today during the House floor session.
Giugni was appointed by Governor Neil Abercrombie to fill the District 33 seat which covers Aiea, Halawa Valley, Halawa Heights, Aiea Heights, and Red Hill.
Former Representative Tom Okamura, who was previously appointed to the seat in January, stepped down last month unexpectedly due to illness.
“The House welcomes Heather Giugni and looks forward to working with the new representative for the 2012 legislative session,” said House Speaker Calvin Say. “Rep. Giugni has demonstrated her commitment to the community through her work in media, political and cultural projects. I believe she will bring an interesting and valuable perspective to the legislature.”
Rep. Giugni can be reached at 808-586-6340 or by email at email@example.com. Her office is located in Room 324 of the Hawaii State Capitol.
