Kim Coco Iwamoto in 2006 became the first transperson successfully elected to a statewide office and the highest ranking one when she was elected to the Hawaii State Board of Education.
I'm happy to let you TransGriot readers know that Kim Coco is running for another four year term on the Hawaii State Board of Education!
She has been a wonderful addition to the board, and as long as her constituents are happy with her performance, bump what the haters have to say.
The more trans elected officials we can point to with pride, the better for all of us no matter where we reside in the States.
Best of luck Kim Coco on November 2!
