Don’t you love smart, independent, articulate women who have strong views on politics at all levels of government and don’t mind telling you what they are? I sure do! And now you and I have the opportunity to meet one at the Honolulu Chapter’s December meeting to be held on December 9 at the Hale Koa Hotel.
We are very fortunate that Cynthia Oi, editorial writer and columnist for the Star Bulletin, will be our guest speaker at the meeting. The topic that she will speak on is “Reporting in Hawaii”, which we all know is a real challenge. As someone who grew up in Palolo Valley, a graduate of Kaimuki High School and the University of Hawaii, Ms. Oi brings a “local sensibility” to her columns. But she also brings the perspective of someone who has lived outside of Hawaii (in Connecticut and Washington, D.C.) and knows that Hawaii is part of a national and global community and she addresses issues at those levels as well. Her columns are thoughtful, insightful, and sometimes provocative but always a good read.
The Honolulu Board and I, personally, are looking forward to meeting and hearing Ms. Oi at the December meeting. We also hope to meet all of you there as well and don’t forget to invite others who may be interested to the luncheon. The reservation form for the December meeting is printed in this issue and early mail in is appreciated. Cost of the luncheon is $20 per person….What a deal! Food and Cythia Oi, too!
