Legislative issues top Waimea Community Association agenda (Feb. 7)

MEDIA RELEASE

Hot issues and community funding priorities for Waimea and North Hawaii will top the Waimea Community Association Town Meeting Agenda at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7 in Waimea School Cafeteria.

The district’s elected public policy makers – Sen. Malama Solomon and Rep. Cindy Evans – will provide an overview of the session, including insight on recent re-organization of both the House and Senate and about the bills they have introduced.

They also will be asking for community input on policies and funding priorities as there is still time to address priority issues during the 2013 session.

Also on the agenda will be an update by Council members Margaret Wille (District 9 – Waimea-Waikoloa-Puako-Kawaihae-North Kohala) and Val Poindexter (District 1 – Waimea-Hamakua).

As always, everyone is invited to all WCA Town Meetings and there is no charge to attend and no membership dues, though donations to support the organization are welcome.

As always, all who attend WCA monthly Town Meetings are asked to continue the association’s commitment to help Waimea’s food pantries by bringing a donation – preferably cash or a check – or non-perishable food items.

Cash or checks are given to the Waimea pantries to purchase foods or gift certificates from local grocery stores and farmers markets so that recipients are able to buy fresh items such as vegetables, fruit and milk as well as diapers and other essentials. Checks may be payable directly to a food pantry so the donation is tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

As usual, Starbucks-Waimea will again contribute hot coffee to the meeting, and those enjoying it are urged to express their gratitude by making a donation on the spot to the food pantry collection drive.

For information, call WCA President Sherman Warner (885-1725) or visit www.WaimeaTown.org
