Speak Out, Hawaii

And they did!

Fifty-four citizens participated in League's voter service project of 1986.

LWV of Honolulu wanted citizens to express their concerns on issues, hoping that other citizens/ voters would ask candidates their stand on vital community issues.

Vote Count and direct mail contributions had fleshed out the budget sufficiently to underwrite the base cost of this project which included: hiring the management-coordinating services of Duckworth and Stebbins, Inc., work with KGU, weekly newspaper ads and print bus poster.

An immediate positive result was the offer by several businesses to underwrite the cost of the Sunday, November 2nd ad which featured three speakers and their scripts on ethics in government.

Join the voter service committee in extending thanks to Sandra Duckworth and Joan Stebbins, to KGU and to all the speakers; see their credits as they appeared in the ad.
