Our agenda is as follows:

  • 6:30 PM Lana’i Council Candidates
  • 7:15 PM South Maui State Representative Candidates

You may think Lana’i is not important but please remember: Although the Lana’i council member is from Lana’i, they still vote on issues which concern  South Maui, and its areas of Kihei, Wailea, Maalaea and Makena.

The top two Council Candidates for each  position move onward toward the November ballot for a final selection. There is only one council member selected for each area, e.g. south Maui, west Maui, etc.

In the primaries, everyone can vote for the party representative, but must choose only one party. On July 21st we will hear from Tina Wildberger and Don Couch, who are both seeking the District 11 State Representative seat for the Democratic party. Whoever wins the primaries has to face yet another contest in November against other parties, e.g. against the Republican party, Aloha Aina etc. before being finally selected as that position for the 2 year term..
