Nacia Lee Blom, a Waimea High graduate and long-time supporter and member of the state GOP, was announced as new executive director in an email from state party Chairman David Chang.
From Chang’s email, sent Monday:
She attended college in the mainland and after a few years of teaching in North Carolina and Virginia, she returned home to Kauai to teach. She later re-located to Honolulu, where she became involved first through fund-raising and grassroots organizing with a local non-profit, and later as a part of my campaign. Most recently, Nacia was responsible for logistics and coordination on an Iowa Bus Tour, where she had the opportunity to work with (and meet) many of the republican presidential candidates.
Blom succeeds Dylan Nonaka, who stepped down as executive director last July to start his own political and public affairs consulting firm, the Kahua Group.
