At Last, a Maui League
A Maui League is in the process of forming. How we wish Marion and Allan Saunders were here to see this day. Thanks to the work of member Joshua Cooper, a lecturer in political science at Maui Community College, and Andrea Dean, who has already formed a group interested in politics, we will soon have a Maui Unit, which is the first stage to becoming a full fledged League.
Virginia Isbell, former state President, went to Maui early in May to discuss this and encourage the group to join as soon as possible. There is more political clout in something proposed by the League of Women Voters, than by a local discussion group.
The Unit will first study their Island's local political organization. They are already working on registration of voters. State League will help by returning part of their dues to the Unit and applying for a new unit grant from National. This essential funding will ease the process. Jackie Parnell will be the liaison between State and Maui.
