Ka Wai Ola

The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement held an Office of Hawaiian Affairs town hall in July to give voters a chance to hear from candidates vying for five seats on OHA’s Board of Trustees in the Aug. 11 primary election. The forum was recorded at Ka Waiwai in Mō‘ili‘ili and televised by KITV on July 25. The forum included candidates for OHA’s O‘ahu Trustee seat, which is being vacated by Trustee Peter Apo, who will not be seeking re-election. Candidates hoping to win one of three open at-large seats also appeared. The two candidates for OHA’s Maui seat will appear on the general election ballot. – Photos: Kawena Carvalho-Mattos
