HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) –

Honolulu City Council Chairman Todd Apo is set to resign Monday to work for the new Disney resort in Koolina.

Apo will be the director of public affairs for Hawaii.  The resort opens next August, and he says the job wouldn’t wait two more years when his term is done.  The City will have to hold a special election within 60 days to replace him.  Apo has been on the council for the past six years.
