On The Campaign Trail

Candidate forum set for September

A free forum for Maui County office-seekers will be held beginning at 6 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Cameron Center in Wailuku, according to an announcement.

Sign-in is at 5 p.m., and pupu will be served until 5:45. County Council candidates will be questioned first, followed by the mayoral candidates.

The event is sponsored by Go Maui Inc., the Construction Industry of Maui and the Maui Chamber of Commerce. The forum will be moderated by Tom Blackburn-Rodriguez of Go Maui and moderators from each of the two other organizations.

The forum will be videotaped and televised later on Akaku Maui Community Media, Blackburn-Rodriguez said.

To register for the event, go to mauichamber.site-ym.com/events/register.aspx?id=1141847. The event is open to everyone. People who are not affiliated with the chamber or construction industry should register as a “Go Maui” member.

* On the Campaign Trail is a public service for candidates to publicize fundraisers, public appearances and other campaign-related items.
