Big Island’s Waimea to Host Candidate Forum October 10, 2012
The Big Island’s Waimea will be home to a Candidate Forum this week on Wednesday, October 10th at 5:15pm at the Waimea School Cafeteria. This Candidate Forum is being presented by the Waimea Community Association and a group of community organizations.
Waimea will be the location for a two-hour Candidate Forum
The forum will follow a traditional question and answer format with Hawai’i Island News journalist Sherry Bracken facilitating. There will be about 30 minutes given to each of the four key races.
Candidates That Have Confirmed Their Attendance
- U.S. Senate: Linda Lingle
- State Senate: Kelly Greenwell and Malama Solomon
- Hawai’i County Mayor: Billy Kenoi and Harry Kim
- Hawai’i County Council District 9: Sonny Shimaoka and Margaret Wille
Candidate Forum Is Open to All
Everyone is invited to the Waimea forum and there is no charge, but a donation of non-perishable food items is suggested. Starbucks will be providing coffee along with light snacks provided by sponsor groups and several Waimea businesses, including Domino’s Pizza and Minit Stop.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the different candidates we will be voting on next month. In addition, all who attend are invited to submit written questions. A panel will review these questions and select the most timely and appropriate ones for various offices.
I love the Big Island! Aloha.
