The HSTA Board of Directors took “No Position” on House Districts 7 and 8.

*Candidates did NOT ask for HSTA recommendation from House Districts 10, 18, 19, 24, 35, 40, and 47.

We want to give a big shout out to Mililani High scoial studies teacher and our own former HSTA Secretary-Treasurer Amy Perruso, who won her race in the General Election and will now serve as the Wahiawa-area representative for House District 46! We are so proud of her and know she will fight even more as a representative for our teachers, our students, our public schools, our communities and our state. Yes, A TEACHER IS IN THE HOUSE! Congratulations, Amy! #strongertogether

Unfortunately, three of our recommended candidates did not win their General Election races and we wish them well and know they will continue to advocate for positive changes in our communities and in our state. Matt LoPresti unfortunately lost by only 117 votes in Senate District 19. This is how important our votes are, so let’s keep on trying. It was another really close race for our recommended candidate Marilyn Lee in Mililani who lost her race by 851 votes. Lastly, but certainly not least, Micah Kalama Pregitzer, one of our science teachers at Kalaheo High, had an amazing race for being a first timer and earned 3,298 votes, while the incumbent he challenged (who's been elected to the position for more than 20 years) received 5,406 votes. Unfortunately, he did not win, but what a turnout! Those are really outstanding results for his first time in a race against a long-time incumbent with a huge following.
