Chapter Reports - Kauai

As 2006 was an election year, the Kaua'i chapter offered two education opportunities for voters and candidates, including a Candidates Forum for U.S. House of Representatives and a Kaua'i County 2006 Voters Guide, which included county ballot amendments. The Kaua'i League also participated in a LWV US Ed Fund grant, thanks to the initiative of State president, Sue Irvine.  The goal of the project is to promote dialog about the lack of full voting rights for citizens of Washington, D.C. The Kaua'i Annual meeting and election were held April 21 at the Aloha Kaua'i Beach Hotel.  With a focus on voting rights, the event featured Jeanette Senecal, a Washington DC Voting Rights spokesperson. In addition, Kat Brady came and discussed how the prison population is disenfranchised. Chapter Officers and Directors for 2007-2008  were elected at the meeting:

Co-President: Carol Bain
Co-President: Lisa Ellen Smith
Vice President: Althea McCleery
Treasurer: Susan Wilson
Secretary: Mary Stone
Directors: Linda Harmon, Esther Solomon, Lori Stitt
Nominating Committee: Cira deCastillo, Edee Seymour, GG Shanley

At the first board meeting, on Monday, May 14 at 9:30 am at Kukui Grove Management Conference Room, a Kauai Chapter Policy Statement was approved and will be shared with the other chapters, state and Honolulu Ed Fund.
