Governor Lingle’s West Hawaii Liaison and Former House Candidate Andy Smith Running Basketball Camp

When I lived on campus at UH Hilo, I lived with some guys on the basketball team.  I had the opportunity to make friends with a few of them that I still keep in contact to this day.

At today’s County Inauguration, I bumped into one of them.  Andy Smith played at UH Hilo where he was known as a tall man that was a deep three point threat!  I haven’t seen a tall guy shoot from outside like that since at UH Hilo.  I used to party with him during the off-season, so it was very surprising to me when I was on Oahu when I learned that he had gotten into politics.

Andy is now Governor Lingle’s East Hawaii Liaison and recently ran a close race for the State House.


He gave me his card and let me know that he is running a Basketball Camp called Hawaii Island Hoops.

If anyone is interested in setting up a camp with Mr. Smith, I urge you to give him an email at [email protected]


Andy is a great guy, and I would trust my own son in his hands.
