The East Hawaii chapter joined with the American Association of University Women in highlighting state primary elections with a Candidates' Forum on September 4, at the Palace Theater in Hilo. Candidates in Senate District 1 and House Districts 2 and 3 were invited. In District 1, newly drawn district lines pitted well-established Democrats Lorraine Inouye and David Matsuura against each other, with the winner (Inouye) opposing Charles Clarke, Republican, in the election. This race appears to be the 'hot one' of this year, and the League is bringing it to the public. Radio station KPUA airs our forum live once again, and Na Leo O'Hawaii films it for later showing on public access television.
Our other project, to film Board of Education members from the outer islands, proceeds with Leaguers from three islands -- Carol Bain from Kauai, Andrea Dean from the newly formed group in Maui, and Lois Cecil from Hawaii -- coordinating with BOE members from each of their islands. Only Maui has a BOE seat that is open this year, but our voters are asking for some means to acquaint themselves with all their representatives. At a later date, we hope to add interviews with the Oahu board members and make tapes available to all of Hawaii's LWV chapters.
