Campaigning at Maku‘u Farmer’s Market

Maku‘u Farmer’s Market doesn’t always have a big wheel with prizes for each person who gives it a spin, as there was on Sunday, Nov. 3. It was a part of Greggor Ilagan’s final few days of campaigning and his final Sunday at Maku‘u Farmer’s Market before Election Day.

The prizes were plate lunches and drinks from the various food vendors around the market.

Free poke bowl from vendor Pooki’s Cookies, a prize from the wheel.

The Sunday before that, the candidate and a few volunteers passed out over 300 Bradda Pops, says Ilagan.

Ilagan has been at market consistently throughout the campaigning period, taking the time to chat with patrons and community members he could be representing if elected.

Ilagan is running against incumbent Fred Blas for the County Council District 4 seat on the Big Island. For more information on the candidate, check out my previous posts here and here.

UPDATE 11/7: Congratulations to Ilagan on his election into the councilmember seat and to Blas for his effort. The final result between Ilagan and Blas was 59.2 percent and 37 percent, respectively. To view the rest of the election day results, please visit the final summary report.
