New Members Since March
A 13-member Honolulu charter commission will be appointed by July 1, 1971. The League successfully worked for the early appointment of this Commission on the theory that it is valuable to have no more than 10 years between comprehensive review by a citizens' commission, answerable to the voters. The charter commission's proposals will be put to the voters in November 1972•
The League will be sending to each commissioner our congratulations, wishes for success, position paper, Council plan comic book, bibliography, Facts and Issues, and assurances that we'll be watching.
Below is the LWV position paper, based on the new consensus gathered these past two months, as well as positions reached a few years
Position Paper (Draft)
The League of Women Voters of Honolulu supports a good charter for the City and County of Honolulu. Following are the criteria the League uses in determining how good a charter is.
In addition to these criteria, the League recommends that the Charter Commission investigate the desirability and practicality of non-partisan municipal elections
