President's Message

At long last, after many grueling hours on the telephone, at the typewriter, on location, and at the channel 5 studio, "Speak Out, Hawaii" has been put to bed and we need only to turn our TV dials to channel 5 and enjoy. We hope that all of you who have the opportunity to view the vignettes will call the office and give us a critique to help us with our evaluation of the project.

My very special thanks goes to Lois Galpert, new-comer to League who got her feet wet FAST. She found out very quickly what it means to coordinate a project of this magnitude and her husband Al, adjusted to being a "League-spouse" admirably.

Lois was always on hand when needed -- even when sick with a bad cold. "I can't do it" or 'it can't be done" is not in her vocabulary. "See you soon" definitely is. Welcome aboard, Lois, we hope you're here to stay.

The "Go-See Tour" to Kapolei, scheduled for September 26 from 10:00 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. if filling up fast. We urge you to call the office immediately to reserve a seat on the bus. Campbell Estate's generous offer to give us a conducted tour of the site of the future second city, including lunch at Lanikuhomua is a once in a long time opportunity that you should try not to miss. Details of the event are found in, the July Voter.

In a few days Honolulu League's first Primary Mayoral Debate will air live on channel 9. An awful lot of work went into putting this debate together by the committee members, both presidents and the project manager. The enormity of the task is not to be believed, and must be experienced to be understood. The front cover of this Voter depicts the end of a stressful day beginning with a press interview at 6:15 A.M., placating disgruntled candidates, taking care of the daily grind, and ending with a press interview at 10:30 P.M.

HOWEVER, all is well that ends well, and we look forward to a great debate.

Arlene Ellis
