Rep. Jessica Wooley (District 47 – La’ie, Hau’ula, Punalu’u, Kahana, Ka’a’awa, Waikane, Kahalu’u, Ahuimanu, Kane’ohe) announced that there will be a Hau’ula Town Hall Meeting on Thursday evening to address the issue of illegal drugs and drug abuse in the community.

What: Hau’ula Town Hall meeting
Where: Hau’ula Civic Center (Revised 5/26 - not Hau'ula Elementary)
When: Thursday, May 27, 2010
Time: 6:00 p.m.


6:00 pm to 7:00 pm: The Hawaii Meth Project and Hina Mauka will provide information on problems, prevention, and treatment options.

7:30 pm to 8:15 pm: The Honolulu Police Department (HPD) and interested residents will discuss crime prevention and how we can form and organize the Hau‘ula Neighborhood Security Watch (NSW) group.

“Drug use and abuse are hurting many people in this district, and there is a lack of drug prevention programs and counselors in Hau’ula,” said Rep. Jessica Wooley. “I invited the Hawaii Meth Project and Hina Mauka so that we can see what our options are and start to take action.”
