The chairs of three committees in the Hawaii House of Representatives are accepting campaign contributions at MW Restaurant Tuesday night.

Reps. Karl Rhoads (Judiciary), Della Au Belatti (Health) and Mark Nakashima (Labor and Public Employment) are each asking for donations of $175.

A flier promoting the fundraiser identifies the committee assignments.

By sheer coincidence, Wednesday is the opening day of the 2016 Hawaii Legislature, where people who donate to candidates also seek to influence a whole bunch of stuff.

Also raising campaign cash Tuesday evening is Rep. Lynn DeCoite, a Democrat representing Molokai, Lanai and parts of Maui.

DeCoite’s fundraiser is at the Mandalay, and the suggested donations range from $50 to $1,000.

Same goes for Oahu Rep. Matt LoPresti.

And same goes for Oahu Rep. Jared Keohokaloleo.
