We have more than a year to go before the 2016 elections get here, but County of Maui Managing Director Keith Regan isn’t wasting any time. Regan, who’s running for the Maui County Council seat currently held by Mike Victorino (who’s prevented from running again in 2016 because of term limits), recently filed papers announcing a big fundraiser next week.
According to this notice just filed with the State of Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission, on Saturday, Aug. 8, Regan will hold a $150/person fundraiser at a private residence in Kula. That residence (as this personal disclosure form shows) belongs to County of Maui Corporation Counsel Patrick Wong, one of the most powerful public officials in the county (he’s also quite the gambler, as this Mauitime story shows).
So far, only Joe Blackburn has announced that he also wants Victorino’s seat (Blackburn’s also unsuccessfully challenged Victorino in two prior elections).
