League Celebrates


President: Jacqueline Kido. A member of the LWV of Honolulu, Jackie currently resides with her husband Michael on Kauai, where she is the executive director of the Kaua'i Chamber of Commerce.

Jackie is a thirteen year Hawaii resident and has been an active league member since 1990. Her involvement in Honolulu included serving on its board of directors, chairing the Voter Service and Budget Committees, and serving as a member of the Planning and Zoning Committee. Shortly after Hurricane Iniki, Kido was appointed Public Information Officer by Mayor JoAnn Yukimura and served in that post for two years.

Vice-President: Suzanne Meisenzahl currently serves as president of the Honolulu League; with one year in that role she has been pivotal in League's role on violence prevention. Suzanne has stepped back from her travel business to give League her full attention.

Secretary/Treasurer Sue Irvine has held this role for four years; the role of secretary has actually been handled by others, but Sue comfortably handles the finances from her Big Island residence. The Big Island league has had Sue serve in many capacities during her many years of membership.

Directors: Cira deCastillo is a member of the Kauai league but since she has lived on Oahu for the past two years she has been able to serve as the state league's vice-president with a focus on voter service.

Dr. Elizabeth Adams has been a league member for many years but it has only been in the past few, since retirement from the practice of psychiatry on Oahu, that she has had "extra" time to serve on the state board. She has served the last two years as chair of the Health Committee.

Robin Loomis is administrative officer for the Population Institute at the East-West Center. She has been at the Center for more than 17 years. Additionally, Robin has been active in several political campaigns, and of late, studies hula and sings in the Punahou Alumni Glee Club.

Pamela Ferguson-Brey serves on the LWV of Honolulu board as chair of the Human Resources Committee. Pamela served as executive director of the State Commission on the Status of Women; she came to League along with her interest in domestic violence as that issue became part of League's national program.
