Honolulu— This Saturday, October 1, Honolulu mayoral candidates will participate in a live tele-town hall forum from 9-10 a.m. and take phone questions from Oahu residents on issues concerning them.
“AARP is pleased to provide the opportunity for Oahu residents to listen and ask questions about the issues they are most concerned with,” said Barbara Kim Stanton, AARP Hawaii’s State Director who will serve as moderator of the discussion. “Given the magnitude of the issues kupuna and their families are facing, it is vital to hear how Mr. Caldwell and Mr. Djou plan to address our community concerns.”
Participants on the phone line will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the call by dialing *3 on their phone key pad.
Media will be permitted to ask the candidates questions before and after the forum. A recording of the discussion will be available online after the event’s conclusion on the AARP Hawaii Vekeo homepage. Please tune in and ask your question!
