Local League News - Honolulu

Transportation was the topic at our December 13 membership meeting at the Pagoda Hotel. League's position on the Bus Rapid Transit plan was determined. Cliff Slater, well-known opponent of rail transit, and Kenneth Hamayasu of the Honolulu Transportation Services Department, were after lunch speakers.

We sent a letter to the City Council supporting the Sand Island sewage sludge digester as well as having testified in person. Some council members have told us our support was important since opposition has arisen.

Honolulu's positions are now accessible on the League's web page (hi.lwv.org).

We plan to partner with AARP and/or AAUW to put on a workshop on lobbying and related matters.
