    Kahuhu Nominated as RNC Chair WASHINGTON, D.C- Zander Kahuhu (R-WA) is now the new RNC Chair after being nominated and seconded as the only nominee for Chairman. Kahuhu's voting record is very conservative, as an original author of several pro life and pro military bills. The nomination came after Kahuhu's proposal of the Green Card Act which makes citizenship a easier process for non criminals and provides a merit based system for criminals. On the Chair Nomination, Kahuhu stated, "It's been a privilege serving as a advocate for the Unborn, a fighter for our gun rights and a believer in smaller Government." Kahuhu describes himself as a paleoconservative and is also a strong nationalist. "Being a Republican means you support our businesses, our military, our rights, and most importantly, this great Nation." Congressman Kahuhu is considered to be one of the most conservative elected officials to ever come out of Washington State, a fairly Blue State.

    Kahuhu Introduces Bipartisan Green Card Act of 1987 WASHINGTON, D.C- Earlier today, Congressman Zander Kahuhu (R-WA) introduced a piece of legislation he calls "bipartisan but not perfect and needs lots of work", it is titled, the "Green Card Act of 1987". It does many things including creating a merit based system for migrants who are convicted criminals, for example they have to be proficient in English and have a college degree of some sort, not meeting the merit results in immediate deportation, however, migrants that are not convicted criminals, will now have a easier pathway to citizenship, must they choose to follow it, and also migrants who have immediate family legally residing in the US get the easiest pathway, meaning lower fees and less waiting times. "It's not a perfect bill and it is quite vague, however, I believe in bipartisan compromise and hope I'll be able to fix it as we get it to the Floor so it can be as close to a perfect bill as possible. It should be a bipartisan bill and I hope we can fix it and make it better." Kahuhu stated on the bill. The idea came to him from a constituent claiming to be a legal immigrant concerned about the current immigration system and the influx of illegal immigrants coming in, "This is true bipartisan immigration reform." Kahuhu said.

    Name: Zander Kahuhu Party: Republican Interviewing Agency: King 5 "I have some concerns about the Helping Others Home Act of 1987 including it's significantly high amount of funds being put into the HUD. However, I will be strongly considering my vote on this bill, with a high homeless population in my District I need to think what they would want. I will consider supporting the bill for them, they are counting on me and with my recent affordable housing forum and listening to many of my constituents stance on this homeless issue, I think it's time for me to put people over politics."

    Kahuhu Announces Support to Helping Others Home Act of 1987 WASHINGTON, D.C- Congressman Zander Kahuhu (R-WA) speaking on behalf of a 8th Congressional District with the highest homeless population in the State of Washington, notably Bellevue, Auburn, Federal Way, and parts of Seattle that influence the high homelessness. As housing prices go up and the housing market grows, Washington State looks more and more likely to head into one of the biggest homelessness crisis in the whole Pacific Northwest. Before publicly speaking out in support of the bill, Kahuhu told the media that he dislikes the amount of money being contributed into this and that it should be lowered. However, with his recent speech on the House floor, we now know that is probably no longer a concern of his. On the House Floor, he stated, " Washington’s 8th Congressional District has some of the largest homeless populations in Washington State and even though I may be somewhat skeptical of this bill, I put my constituents interest before mine and with the affordable housing crisis in my District, it’s causing more people to lose homes and a homeless Crisis is starting to build up in my District. If we don’t act upon this homeless issue, soon cities like Seattle and Bellevue will be flooded with homeless camps." Hours after his anticipated public announcement Kahuhu stated, "Yes, I believe the amount of funds going into this is too high, however, the homeless people in my District are counting on me to help them, many of whom showed up at my affordable housing forum I held in Bellevue. I simply cannot oppose this bill, the affordable housing crisis in our State is getting bad and it's time I step up." Kahuhu asked to be a co sponsor to the bill and plans to vote for it once the time comes.

    Mr Speaker, I am pleased to announce on the House floor today that I am in support of this bill. This piece of legislation will help my constituents a ton. Washington’s 8th Congressional District has some of the largest homeless populations in Washington State and even though I may be somewhat skeptical of this bill, I put my constituents interest before mine and with the affordable housing crisis in my District, it’s causing more people to lose homes and a homeless Crisis is starting to build up in my District. If we don’t act upon this homeless issue, soon cities like Seattle and Bellevue will be flooded with homeless camps. We cannot let this happen, this Legislation is a good push forward and the people in my district cannot support it more. I ask to be a co-sponsor of this legislation and plan to vote for it when the times comes. I yield.

    Kahuhu Holds Housing Forum in Bellevue BELLEVUE- Congressman Zander Kahuhu (R-Federal Way) held a housing forum in Bellevue last Friday, and spoke to an estimated crowd of 10,000 people from the 8th Congressional District. The forum was held at Bellevue College, in a City known for very high housing prices. Concerns mentioned in the forum were rapidly increasing housing prices, instability in housing prices, high property taxes, discriminatory landlords, and housing discrimination, among others. "Housing prices should not be going up so fast, in such a little amount of time, politicians across the State of Washington are not doing their job, as a State Senator, I addressed the issue, and I warned us, I saw that our housing industry was going into a big hole, and now look, it'll only get worse unless we do something about it. Olympia needs to step up and fight for their constituents, I promise I will do everything I can at the Federal level to make housing more affordable, reliable and less discriminatory." Kahuhu stated. Kahuhu first dealt with the issue of housing during his time as Tacoma Mayor and it has been very important to him ever since. Washington State has some of the most unstable housing prices in the Country and it's something every single person should worry about. "Washington State should not be afraid to work with the "Other Washington" in these situations, it is vital to receive support from Representatives like us, I'll be glad to help in DC as much as I can." Kahuhu said. Congressman Kahuhu has had a positive voting record when it comes to housing and infrastructure, and that trend is expected to continue as he serves Washington State's 8th District in the US House of Representatives.

    Name: Zander Kahuhu Party: Republican Interviewing Agency: Seattle Times "Housing prices are too high in King County, that it's getting ridiculous. As your Representative in Congress, I will look towards more affordable and reliable housing, I'll tell you right now a big factor to these high prices are high property taxes, both on the National level and State level, I call on State politicians across the State of Washington to focus on affordable housing reform, as I will be working towards it in the "Other Washington", I expect our State to be responsible and solve these issues our constituents are struggling with, anything works. We have to stop housing prices from going up until it's too late."
