UPDATE: 9/29/16 LAST DAY TO SUBMIT QUESTIONS!
9/16/16 WOW, questions are pouring in. This is your opportunity
- We took all the input submitted for which candidates you favored to participate in the Oct 18 forum up to 9/1, and then extended invitations to those six candidates. Now that we have confirmation, we announce your choices. You chose three Council races, South Maui, Upcountry and W 3, which is often called Wailuku, to us slighting the two other named communities, Waikapu and Waihe’e
- Of the six candidates of course just a single incumbent, Don Couch and the challenger, Kelly King; Alika Atay v Dain Kane and Napua Grieg-Nakasone v Yuki Lei Sugimura
- We thank those of you who expressed kind words for our community action along with your selections. To those who expressed their selections, including non members, while telling us our volunteers should be doing more, finding ways to include ALL candidates, and hold multiple events, in a larger venue , in spirit of Aloha we still counted your votes with equal value, but did wonder about your attitude, and if you understand pono.
- So now we open the suggested candidate questions segment, where we will accept your proposed questions for candidates. You may designate specific race for yours, or just make it applicable to all six candidates
- In the primary forum, we did our best to ask your question verbatim, but this time we will not include introductory or explanatory statements. If you attended or watched the tape on Akaku, you observed the challenge. So please just short specific questions. The cut off to accept questions is September 30,and only emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org will be included. We do give priority to members, but anyone can submit.
- So let the questions begin
