Maui Young Democrats to host County Council Upcountry debate

PUKALANI - The Maui Young Democrats invite the public to attend their Upcountry County Council debate on Wednesday, April 27, at Pukalani Community Center.

This first debate of the 2016 election cycle will feature the four candidates currently vying for the Upcountry County Council seat: Stacey Moniz, Eric Molina, Yuki Lei Sugimura, and Napua Greig Nakasone.

The event begins with a meet-and-greet at 5:30 p.m., followed by a debate and forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Light pupus and refreshments will be provided.

The Maui Young Democrats are currently hosting an open poll on the event's Facebook page, asking the public to weigh in on possible debate topics. Topics range from Maui's affordable housing crisis to the recent HC&S


"There are a number of decisive issues that Maui County is facing during this election cycle," said Tim Lara, president of Maui Young Democrats.

"We want these events to help voters understand exactly where the candidates stand on these very important issues."

Councilwoman Gladys Baisa has held the Upcountry council seat for the past five terms. Having reached the term limit, Baisa is ineligible to run in the 2016 election. The evening will highlight the candidates and celebrate Councilwoman Baisa's decades of dedication to the Maui and Upcountry communities.

Maui Young Democrats plan to host candidate forums, voter registration drives, community service events, social mixers and public issue forums throughout the 2016 election cycle.

To register, visit the event's Facebook page. To request to be added to the Maui Young Democrats' e-mail list, e-mail President@MauiYoungDems .com.
