This issue actually popped up last year, when a group of Lanai residents came forward claiming Kaho’ohalahala lived in Lahaina rather than Lanai. Sol ultimately won the Lanai Council seat by a healthy margin, but the legal challenges haven’t let up, and as of this writing are still very much active. Kaho’ohalahala has decided to run for Mayor this year—a position where it doesn’t matter where you live as long as it’s in Maui County—and will almost certainly serve out his current Council term. But it’ll still be interesting to see how this protracted fight plays out, less for Kaho’ohalahala than for the precedent it could set.
