Abercrombie and Ige are among the leading candidates in the Primary race for governor and are appearing side by side for the first time on Hawaii Island.

Questions for the forum will primarily address issues impacting Hawaii Island and will come from the co-sponsoring groups.

The candidate forum is sponsored by the Waimea Community Association. Other co-hosts include Waimea’s Lalamilo Farmers, Friends of the Future, Tutu’s House, Malaai: The Culinary Garden of Waimea Middle School, North Hawaii Rotary, Parker School, Waimea Town Market, Waimea Preservation Association, Coqui Free Waimea, Habitat for Humanity – West Hawaii and Waimea Middle School.

Both candidates have been invited to bring candidate literature to share with the public. However, no candidate signs or banners are permitted as the forum is a voter education event, not a rally.

As always at WCA Town Meetings, complimentary hot coffee will be provided by Starbucks and snacks will be provided by sponsoring groups. Also as usual, attendees are urged to support the Waimea Food Pantry with donations. Cash, checks or non-perishable foods are welcome and receipts will be available.
