Rep. Carroll Holds Maui Meetings on Native Hawaiian Programs

Rep. Mele Carroll will wrap up her Maui island wide meetings on Native Hawaiian programs and resources today and tomorrow. Rep. Carroll joined forces with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), with the support of the Kellogg Foundation, to identify the most pressing issues in our Native Hawaiian communities and to review existing programs and funding sources that address the quality of life in Hawaii.

She started last Monday, May 12th in Kihei, and has been to Lahaina, Keanae, Haiku, Pukalani, Hana, and Nahiku. Tonight, Monday, at 7:30 p.m., Rep. Carroll will be holding a meeting in Kahului, at the Kahului Community Center. Tomorrow night, Tuesday, at 6:30 p.m., the meeting will be in Wailuku at the Queen Liliuokalani Children's Center.

Refreshments will be served. The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement also provided support services.
