As you are all aware the League cannot realistically plan to lobby equally hard or in exactly the same way for each item of our consensus. We must tailor our approach to each item. We feel that Points 1 & 2 above are non-controversial; that Point _ (as it stands) will be aided by the passage of time; but in the case of Point 3 concerted lobbying is a must. So your State Board has drawn up a tentative list of things to do:
We hope the Honolulu League can put on a legislative function where we can meet our legislators and remind them of our interest in good legislation, especially Election Laws. We need Honolulu to supply an Observer Corps for the Legislative Session.
The Observer Corps would be responsible for publishing the Legislative Newsletter, keeping roll-call votes on pertinent issues; and staying on top of legislative calendar. This can be exciting work. Why don't you try it out?
The Election Law Committee plan to: write letters to editor on identification at the polls; a letter to each legislator on our positions following it up with other data at appropriate time; testify before committees and supply written information to them; hold a Lobbying Workshop to review what we learned last year; maintain a clipping file on each legislator; keep a priority list and plan ways to implement each item of action and publish an Every-Citizen booklet on our Primary Law and where it is going.
Any of you wanting information on a legislator call: Marnie Straehley at #700-324 -- evenings are best. She has the clipping files.
