Kaua'i One of Ten in Nation to Host Ladies Home Journal Town Meeting
Where our government is concerned, what's working? And what's not working? The League of Women Voters of Kauai County will host a town meeting on October 10, 1996 from 6:30-8:30 P.M. at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall.
Facilitated by Peter Adler, executive director of the Hawaii Justice Center, the forum will give citizens an opportunity to debate the role of government and discuss ways in which communities can take action to address common needs, goals, and concerns.
The event is being coordinated by Kauai League Voter Service Chair Carol Bain, who went to Washington D.C. earlier this year to attend a "Get Out The Vote" conference. According to Bain, the focus will be on good government.
Do elected officials encourage and create opportunities for public dialogue and participation? What is the level of citizen involvement in self-governance and how can we make it better? What are examples where government is working, and where is it not working? These are some of the issues we'll be discussing," said Bain.
For more information, contact Carol Bain at Kauai Worldwide Communications (808) 246-2111.
