DEADLINE FOR NEIGHBORHOOD BOARD CANDIDATES

       Tuesday, January 16, 2007, is the deadline for candidate applications for the 2007 elections to Oahu’s 32 neighborhood boards.

      

       Candidate application forms are available at the city clerk’s office and the Neighborhood Commission Office at Honolulu Hale, the Neighborhood Commission Office at Kapolei Hale and all satellite city halls. The form can also be downloaded from the following website: http://www.honolulu.gov/nco/2007_candidate_application_form.pdf .

 

       Neighborhood board elections are held in odd-numbered years. All 444 seats on the boards are up for election, and the two-year terms of office start in June. Members are elected from the respective neighborhoods. Candidates must be at least 18 years old on January 16, 2007, and live in the neighborhood and, if applicable, the subdistrict.

 

       The neighborhood board system was established in 1973 to increase and assure effective citizen participation in the decisions of government.  The boards meet monthly and serve as advisory sounding boards for all levels of government about issues of relevance to their communities.
