Big Island voters tossed out the two County Council incumbents, but sent a host of lawmakers back to the state Legislature.

Emily Naeole of Puna and Guy Enriques of Ka‘u were upset by political newcomers in the two council races that were not settled in the primary election.

In Puna, Fred Blas ousted Naeole, 59.25 percent to 40.75 percent. Actual numbers: 3,611 to 2,484.

That race also included 159 blank votes and 7 over votes.

In Ka‘u, Brittany Smart upset Guy Enriques, 61.29 percent to 38.71 percent. Actual numbers: 3,572 to 2,256.

Blank votes numbered 162, with one over vote.

Naeole is finishing her second two-year term; Enriques was in his first term.

It remains to be seen how the power might shift on the council, as Naeole and Enriques frequently voted with the East Hawaii councilors, making up a five-vote majority.

Once the new council is sworn in next month, the line up will be: Brittany Smart, Fred Blas, Dennis “Fresh” Onishi, J Yoshimoto, Donald Ikeda, Dominic Yagong, Pete Hoffmann, Angel Pilago and Brenda Ford.

Meanwhile, there were no upsets in the state Legislature or U.S. Congress, with incumbents ruling the day and both state Constitutional amendments passing.
