Hawai’i County Council member Greggor Ilagan is running for the District 2 seat in the Hawaiʻi State Senate in 2016 to represent Puna and Ka’u.

Ilagan is in his second term on the Hawaiʻi County Council and was first elected in 2012 as the youngest council member in the history of Hawaiʻi County.

Ilagan said in a press release that he believes that Hawai’i’s future is dependent on footprints of great leaders.

“The future of politics as I’ve always seen it is about the people. I want to continue making a difference on the issues affecting our families, friends and neighbors. This has compelled me to run for the State Senate,” said Ilagan in the release. “I will continue to be the person who listens to people’s concerns and tackles problems important to them. I need your support, and can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together for a better tomorrow.”
