From the President

The League is humming with activity. Leaguers have been actively participating in legislative activities, writing letters and presenting testimony. We are conducting a vote count in March as well as reaching out to the community for Election 2008. The community has great expectations of League. We are a clear and consistent voice for political responsibility. I am again calling on members to participate in League activities so that the work can continue. We will get back what we give.

Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting will be at the Waikiki Yacht Club on April 12, 8:30 a.m. We will be discussing the question of a State Constitutional Convention, electing officers, directors and members of the Nominating Committee, adopting a program for the year, and adopting a budget while enjoying the relaxing ambiance of the yacht club. Parking is free in Ala Moana Park.

Clip and return the form in this newsletter and send it in. You will be treated to a tasty lunch of tossed salad and chicken mushroom linguine in garlic cream sauce with garlic bread. Dessert will be haupia cake.

Nominating Committee Report

Nominating Committee chair, Lisa Carter, has not submitted a report to be included in this newsletter as required by our bylaws.

I hope members will step up and volunteer to shepherd League for the next two years. Anyone interested may contact me through the League office.

The positions to be filled are listed below for your consideration.


Vice President


Director (two positions)

Nominating Committee (three positions)


The proposed budget is submitted for consideration. The Board of Directors has worked to prepare a proposal that reflects the reality of a declining membership and a less than robust demand for vote count services, historically, our primary source of revenue. Membership dues go toward paying our National and State Leagues “taxes” with very little extra for Honolulu’s treasury. We welcome your recommendations and participation to improve our financial health.

See you at the Waikiki Yacht Club
