Charter Amendments Recommendations

Inside this newsletter is a 4-page pullout summary of Leagues recommendations for the proposed City Charter amendments.

League members Piilani Kaopuiki and Alice Fisher attended meetings of the City Charter Commission. League testified on some proposals. Meetings were held to discuss all the amendments once the Commission decided which would be on the ballot.
