BOE Winner Transcends Gender Issue
All Kim Coco Iwamoto wanted was a chance to fix Hawaii's public schools when she entered the race for a seat on the Board of Education.

But just hours after her general election victory last week, the 38-year-old attorney became known across the country as a role model for transgenders.

For Iwamoto, whose gender orientation was never a big issue in four months of campaigning, the recognition as the nation's top elected transgender official is "an honor." She, however, would rather focus on her educational platform.

"I didn't run as a transgender candidate," she said Friday at the Bishop Museum, where some of her political signs still hung on fences. "I ran as an advocate for education and for every student."
