U.S. Representative Ed Case proudly represents Hawaii's First Congressional District (O'ahu from Makapu'u through Central Honolulu and Leeward to Mililani, Waipahu, 'Ewa and Kapolei). Congressman Case previously represented Hawaii's Second Congressional District (Windward O'ahu, North Shore, Central O'ahu, Wai'anae, Neighbor Islands, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands) from 2002 to 2007. He also served as Hawai'i State Representative from 1994 to 2002 in various positions including Majority Leader. Ed Case was born and raised in Hilo, with family roots in Hawai'i dating back to 1896. He attended Waiākea-Kai and Keaukaha Elementary Schools in Hilo and graduated from Hawai'i Preparatory Academy in Kamuela, Williams College in Massachusetts and the University of California/Hastings College of Law in San Francisco. Before law school Case worked on Capitol Hill for three years as Legislative Assistant to U.S. Congressman/Senator Spark Matsunaga (Hawai'i). Following law school he served as clerk to Hawai'i Supreme Court Chief Justice William Richardson, and then joined the Honolulu-based law firm of Carlsmith Ball, Hawaii's oldest, where for two decades he practiced litigation, property, transactional, business and government law and rose from associate to partner and managing partner. Following his initial service in Congress, Case practiced law for seven years with the Honolulu firm of Bays Lung Rose & Holma, where he also served as managing attorney. He then worked for five years as Senior Vice President/Chief Legal Officer of Outrigger Enterprises Group, one of Hawaii's oldest hotel and resort companies with properties throughout Hawai'i and the Pacific-Asia-Indian Ocean region. Since returning to Congress in 2019, Case has served on the House Committee on Appropriations, where he is currently a member of the Subcommittee on Defense and the Subcommittee on Homeland Security. He has also served on the House Committee on Natural Resources, where he is currently a member of three subcommittees- Water, Wildlife and Fisheries; Indian and Insular Affairs; and Oversight and Investigation. He also serves as co-founder and Co-Chair of the House Pacific Islands Caucus and as Vice Chair of the House Problem Solvers Caucus. Case is married to Audrey (Nakamura), a sansei (third generation from Japan) whose Hawai'i roots date back to the 1890s in Honolulu and Kona. They have four children, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. In his spare time, Ed enjoys hiking and other outdoor and water activities, especially sailing and bodysurfing. Ed and Audrey also enjoy travel and family activities with a current emphasis on grandchild-raising.
