Future Of Neighborhood Boards At Stake As Charter Commission Schedules June 9 Meeting

An update from the Honolulu Neighborhood Commission:

June 3, 2016
Aloha community members, 
On May 16, 2016 a Permitted Interaction Group of the Honolulu Charter Commission recommended that the Charter Commission place on the general election ballot the following question: “Should the City increase citizen participation in the decision of government though the use of electronic communication, such as television, Internet, and email, and eliminate the Neighborhood Board System?’

The Charter Commission will be considering this recommendation at their meeting on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 3:30 p.m. View the agenda here: AGENDA
If you had previously submitted testimony ahead of the May 26 Charter Commission meeting that was cancelled, your testimony was kept and will be provided to the Charter Commissioners for their consideration. You do not need to resubmit it.
