Changes in Hawaii House Leadership

After much consideration, Speaker Scott K. Saiki today accepted the resignation of Rep. Cindy Evans (North Kona, Kohala) as House Majority Leader. Evans offered her resignation as Majority Leader during the legislative special session held in August of this year.

Saiki has appointed Hawaii Island Rep. Mark M. Nakashima (Hamakua, Hilo), to Vice Speaker of the House. He replaces Rep. Della Au Belatti (Makiki, Tantalus, Papakolea, McCully, Pawaa, Manoa) who has been named House Majority Leader.

Rep. Evans will assume Nakashima’s chairmanship of the Economic Development & Business Committee.

With Nakashima’s appointment and with Kauai Rep. Dee Morikawa as Majority Floor Leader, neighbor island representatives continue to occupy two of the top four positions in House leadership.
