Chapter Reports - Honolulu
On Oct 27, we sponsored an information forum at the state capitol on mass transit options available to the City and County of Honolulu. Panelists Toru Hamayasu, Chief Planner for the Honolulu Department of Transportation Services, Honolulu City Council member Ann Kobayashi, Honolulu City Council member Gary Okino, and Panos Prevedouros, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Hawaii, Manoa discussed the pros and cons associated with the various options. League moderator was JoAnn Maruoka.
With regard to voter service, Honolulu is planning community registration, stumping for the importance of voting at the high schools, and making other efforts in anticipation of the 2008 election. Arlene Ellis is leading our continuing efforts to register voters and all other related activities.
Honolulu conducted the election for the National Indian Education Association on October 26. The all-day election at the Hawaii Convention Center began in the morning at 8:00 and ended at approximately 8:30 that night. The ballot count of 600-plus exceeded the organizers' expectations. Arlene Ellis led the team, consisting of Helen Griffin, Lois Tyler, Robin Loomis and Piilani Kaopuiki. League solicits names of organizations that would like our service, since it is an important source of our income. Anyone with information about such organizations is invited to call the League office at 531-7448.
Jackie Parnell is working with the City's initiative on Council resolutions and bills related to affordable shelter.
