COMMISSION SCHEDULES BRIEFINGS FOR POTENTIAL CANDIDATES

FOR OAHU NEIGHBORHOOD BOARDS

 

            The Neighborhood Commission will host informational sessions Saturday  for people interested in running for any of the 444 seats on the 32 neighborhood boards around Oahu.

            Elections will be held in March. The two-year term of office for all neighborhood board members  begins in June.

             “The Neighborhood Board election process gives all residents, including non-citizens, a chance to participate in grassroots democracy,” said Joan Manke, executive secretary of the Neighborhood Commission. “It is very important that those elected truly reflect the needs of their community.”

            Two informational sessions  will be held simultaneously from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, January 13, 2007, a.m., at Kapolei Hale (Conference Room C), 1000 Uluohia St.,  and the  Honolulu Hale Annex Conference Room (across from Mission Memorial Auditorium.)

             Board members and members and staff of the Neighborhood Commission, which oversees board operations, will be on hand to answer any questions from possible candidates.  Free parking is available at Kapolei Hale and the Frank Fasi Municipal Parking lot next to Honolulu Hale.

            The deadline for candidate applications is January 16, 2007.  For more information, please call 527-5749 or visit our website at www.honolulu.gov/nco
