Neighborhood board members and Neighborhood Commission Office staff will be on hand to answer questions from potential candidates.
“Neighborhood boards serve as an important nexus for citizen and government interaction. We hope to get as many candidates as possible to increase civic engagement on O‘ahu,” said Shawn Hamamoto, Executive Secretary of the Neighborhood Commission Office. “It is important that we give the public access to their elected officials and other government agencies.”
The voting period for neighborhood board elections will begin on April 28, 2017, and end on May 19, 2017. Elected board members serve a two-year term, starting on July 1, 2017. All board members are volunteers.
