Puna, Hawaiʻi August 5, 2015 — Council member Greggor Ilagan is running for the District 2 seat in the Hawaiʻi State Senate in 2016 to represent the great people of Puna and Kaʻū – for our values, our culture and for a better tomorrow.

This has compelled me to run for the State Senate,” said Ilagan. “I will continue to be the person who listens to people’s concerns and tackles problems important to them.
