Kona County Farm Bureau hosts candidate forum (Sept. 16)


The Kona County Farm Bureau is hosting a candidate forum 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at the Christ Church Episcopal Meeting Hall, in Kealakekua.

The topic will be “All About Agriculture.” Candidates seeking legislative office, both state and county, to represent West Hawaii will be asked to respond to questions ranging from economic development, land use, resource management, product development and protection, with agriculture being the common theme.

“Diversified agriculture is providing an increasing contribution to our economy and is a huge component of our culture and lifestyle. It will be important to learn what perspectives these individuals hold. It will also be important for these candidates to see that many people in Kona place a very high priority on agriculture and the policies that may impact the industry and the life style,” said Stefanie Delmont, president of the KCFB.

For further information, call 324-6011.
