Kauai County, Hawaii to Hold Special Election for Prosecuting Attorney
Hawaii’s Kauai County Prosecuting Attorney Justin Kollar will step down this month from the job he’s held for nearly a decade, clearing the way for a special election to determine who will next lead the office.
A special primary election is scheduled for December 18 followed by a special general election on February 26, 2022.
Kollar, who will leave the county on September 30, has accepted a job as chief of staff for the nonprofit Fair and Just Prosecution and plans to relocate to California.
The acting prosecutor for Kauai will be Rebecca Like, who has worked in the county prosecutor’s office since 2010.
