Voters Service Views

Your present Voters Service Committee was organized in the fall of 1952. At that time those objectives were outlined:

  1. To become acquainted with the members of the Honolulu Board of Supervisors.

  2. To learn how our City-County government functions.

  3. To share with you, members of the League, through the medium of the League Bulletin, some of the decisions of the Board of Supervisors which affect the welfare of this community.

When the newly elected City-County Board met for the first time in January, 1953, members of Voters Service were there. They have been present, with very few exceptions, at all the meetings of the Board, the Finance, Public Works and the Committee of the Whole, throughout the year.

The chairman of Voters Service was at the last meeting of the year, Wednesday, December 31, 1953. At the close of this meeting, Supervisor Noble Kauhane extended New Years greetings to member of Voters Service who had been so consistent in attendance at their meetings.

So we members of this committee feel we have at least accomplished our first objective. We also have learned a great deal more about the way our City-County government is run and we have tried to keep you informed on important issues which affect all of us.

This new year of 1954 is an election year. Voters Service will have added objectives which will require more workers. Our ranks are already a trifle thin due to illness, transfers, etc.

This is very interesting work but requires day time participation, as the meetings of the Board of Supervisors are Tuesday, 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., Friday 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon and 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. The larger the committee the easier for all concerned. League members who have leisure time during the day or can plan to give a forenoon or afternoon twice a month regularly, please call Mrs. Westly (98615), Mrs. Miho (904833) or Mrs. Smith (97193).

Now is your chance to participate in activities planned and executed on a non-partisan basis. These activities will help you arid your neighbor cast a more intelligent ballot. In casting a more intelligent ballot you are helping our city to be better governed. Is it worth the effort or should we let 'George do it'? What if 'George' is a 'slicker', interested only in 'George'.
