Issues

Opposition to redistricting decision

Although Democrats on the Hawaii Reapportionment Commission were strongly supportive of the decision, voting 3-1 for the inclusion of non-resident/military populations, there has been strong push back from fellow Democrats on the Big Island. Evans, along with Sen. Malama Solomon, Rep. Robert Herkes, and several others, have pressured the Commission to reverse its decision. In addition, some have threatened to challenge the decision in court.[2] The change in policy is expected to benefit Oahu and prevent it from losing a state senate seat.[3]
