Rep. Tom Okamura (District 33 – Aiea, Halawa) has submitted his resignation, effective today.  The following is a statement from Speaker of the House, Calvin K.Y. Say:

“I want to thank Rep. Tom Okamura for his service to the state legislature over the course of his career.  During the few weeks this year that he’s been with the House, he has graced us with his unique knowledge, expertise and wisdom as a veteran lawmaker and true public servant.  His health, however, has become a concern, and Rep. Okamura has placed the needs of his district first.  He wants to ensure that the district and his constituents receive the best representation possible and has, therefore, chosen to step down at this time.  We wish him well as he attends to his health.”
