KAHULUI – A Candidates’ Forum for the Maui County Council will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 3, at the Binhi at Ani Community Center at 780 Onehee Avenue in Kahului (across from Maui Waena Intermediate School).

This event is sponsored by the Maui Filipino Working Group in partnership with the Maui Filipino Community Council. It will address concerns within the community in general. Candidates will be questioned on issues such as housing, social services, immigrant services, and youth and elder programs.

The Maui Filipino Working Group was founded by Cornelia Soberano, JD; Virgie Cantorna, RN, PsyD; Jeny Bissell, RN; and Kim Compoc, MA, to educate the community about social justice and cultural issues affecting Filipino-Americans and other immigrant groups.

All County Council candidates are being invited. Voter registration forms will be available for those who have not yet registered.

The public is invited to this free event. Heavy pupus will be served. Call Soberano at 298-3948 for further information.
