President's Message

February is League's 62nd birthday. Let's celebrate together at La Pietra on February 13. "Winelight is a wonderful opportunity to introduce friends to our talented, witty, and intelligent League members. La Pietra on Diamond Head provides a charming background for enjoying fine wines and fine company. (And if you don't drink wine, we'll have other beverages.) So do try to sell your tickets to supporters in the community and encourage them to join us.

"Winelight" is the only fund-raising event we have had in the last three years, and you know from reading the VOTER, we are in dire need of money. Don't be embarrassed about asking people to buy tickets. Look at it as offering the community an opportunity to support our active and worthwhile organization. After all, you continue to support LWV with your time and dues. Why not give other people a chance to support our community work.

League provides needed oversight of our city government, particularly in the areas of planning and zoning and of transportation. We carefully monitored the Charter Review Commission proceedings, and then testified at the public hearings. We also supported our postion on the Charter on Dialog on KHET.

We have argued for clean air at HECO's hearings regarding the burning of sulphur fuel at Kahe point. We also supported the conversion of garbage to energy in the H-POWER controversy, which, incidentally, is resurfacing as Resource Recovery.

League may be getting older, but it is certainly not slowing down. But we do need a little help from our friends in these difficult economic times. Let's join together and make "Winelight" a social and financial success:

Aloha,

Arlene Woo
