Chapter Report - Honolulu

Membership as of August 3, 2006 was 222. The Membership Committee is working to establish an accurate roster of League members state-wide. Notices will be sent out to members who are overdue in making their dues payments. Please support Teresa Lau with a prompt reply if you receive a letter from her.

Transportation: Honolulu has an established position opposing rail on Oahu. We plan to send letters to the Mayor and City Council reiterating this position.

Voter Service: Honolulu is partnering with Olelo Community Television, the Hawaii State Office of Elections, and the Hawaii Institute for Public Affairs to present Vote!2006 initiatives. Honolulu committee members will be calling candidates to offer assistance in using the Candidates in Focus service over Olelo. This service provides candidates the opportunity to tape a five-minute message that will air repeatedly over Olelo channel Focus 49.

The 2006 Membership Directory has been mailed out to members. If you have not received your copy, call the office for one. Address changes are already being received and several mailings have been returned due to incorrect address. Please remember to inform the League when you change contact information.

Piilani Kaopuiki, President
