Honolulu City Councilman Stanley Chang recently had his license suspended by the Hawaii State Bar Association for not paying his membership dues.

According to HSBA’s 2013 fee schedule, Chang would have to pay $504 this year for his bar membership. 

He’s now one of 996 attorneys in the state who is not allowed to practice law in Hawaii for non-payment of fees.

Chang is running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 1. He is the only candidate to have officially announced a bid for CD1.

That seat is currently being warmed by Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, who has announced her intentions to run against sitting U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz.
