Representative Lynn DeCoite filed papers to seek election to the District 13 State House seat, the office she was appointed to by Governor Ige on February 19, 2015 to fill the remainder of the two-year term of the late Mele Carroll.

“Being appointed to represent District 13 was a tremendous honor. It has been a whirl-wind adventure; I don’t think I’ve ever been so inspired, amazed, overwhelmed, tired, and energized all at the same time- and I wouldn’t change one second of it! It is with that notion that I am now running in the 2016 election to continue to represent District 13, so I can further serve the residents of East Maui, Moloka’i, Lāna’i along with the entire state of Hawai’i.” said Rep. Lynn DeCoite to a group of supporters before filing her papers at Maui County Clerk’s office.
