Charter Commission

Observers report that Charter Commission has continued to hold meetings twice weekly. They have met with the Governor, the Mayor, and heads of many City and County departments with the purpose of understanding the current functioning of Honolulu's government, and receiving suggestions from those responsible for it.

One meeting was held with the Board of Supervisors. Mr. Kido, as spokesman reported that the Supervisors are in favor of retaining the present Mayor-Council form of Government. They suggest a 4-year term for supervisors, referendum and recall, and that "something be done" about taxes. One of the Supervisors felt that city offices now elective could be appointive with the exception of those of Mayor and Controller.

The Commission expects soon to secure a research worker to implement the work of the Commission.
