Mike Molina nets group endorsements
The Hawaii Government Employees Association, the Hawaii Fire Fighters Association and the Sierra Club have endorsed former Council Member Mike Molina in his bid to recapture his former Makawao-Haiku-Paia residency seat.
That seat is held by Council Member Mike White, who will face Molina in the Nov. 4 general election. Molina served five terms on the County Council from 2001 to 2010.
