 Kahuhu Wins First House Seat

 

FEDERAL WAY- After having served 2 terms in the Washington State Senate, Zander Kahuhu (R-Federal Way) has finally won the race for the newly created 8th Congressional District against Democrat, Kelly Wheaton, with 68% of the vote. Kahuhu has been preparing for this Race since his appointment as Tacoma Mayor and has finally won a seat in the House on his first ever Campaign. The 8th District runs from Federal Way, Kahuhu's hometown, all the way up to Bellevue, the 8th District is also considered to be the most diverse District in the State of Washington, if not in the entire Western United States. The District was first created in 1983 and has been held by the GOP ever since. Cities like Federal Way, Auburn, Enumclaw and Maple Valley contribute to the solid GOP success the 8th District has had and will for sure contribute more to the GOP success in the future. "Honored, blessed, pleased and relieved" was all newly elected Congressman Kahuhu could say when asked about his feelings on winning the Seat. Kahuhu has also gone down in the record books as the first Latter-Day-Saint (Mormon) elected to Congress from Washington State, and is a part of the Christian Right Faction.

Kahuhu Introduces Bill for the Benefit of the VA

 

WASHINGTON, D.C- Congressman Kahuhu (R-Federal Way) has officially introduced his first bill as a Congressman, and it fixes the problem of discrimination within the VA System. It increases the amount of active managers from 1-2 to 3-4 in order to have more witnesses in a case where a employee mistreats a veteran. Mistreatment of our veterans, including denial of treatment, is a predominant issue in VA Clinics and with only 1 or 2 managers present at these Clinics, these employees are never met with the proper discipline, because no one witnessed it, let alone the managers, the only witness in these cases, are just the veterans being mistreated and the employee mistreating the veteran. The Bill also provides a smooth process for the VA to hire and promote people to the position of Manager, to make sure the people who are promoted or hired as managers are people who have experience and a clean criminal record, along with a few more qualifications to ensure these managers are fully qualified to properly handle these types of mistreatment cases. "It's a common sense and bipartisan bill that is very much needed. I hope all the Congressman that have concerns will talk to me directly so I can address them." Kahuhu said on the Bill. The Bill can be found here.

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.

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.
