Nina Turner on Maui

As we prepare for Precinct Meetings, County and State Convention in the coming months, I wanted to make sure you were personally invited to a special event happening this Saturday.

As a part of her statewide speaking tour, Nina Turner will be visiting Maui on February 10th 6-8pm. Ms. Turner is a former State Senator from Ohio, President of Our Revolution, Member of the DNC Unity Reform Commission, and a Founding Fellow of the Sanders Institute. A champion for progressive causes such as labor, women’s reproductive health, voting rights, and the eradication of wealth and income inequality, she forms deep connections with people from all walks of life.

Known as an eloquent, inspiring speaker, Nina will be here at Pukalani Community Center on February 10th 6-8pm to share and connect with our communities. Individual tickets to this grassroots fundraising event are $27. Please come support the DPH, invite friends, and share the links provided.

Maui County Committee Meeting May 7th

Aloha Maui County Democrats,

Its time for our first Maui County Committee Meeting on May 7th 2017 at Maui Waena Intermediate School  3:00-4:30pm

Business to be handled:

  • Updating the Maui County Bylaws. (See amendments at bottom of post)
  • Confirming  Committee Officer appointments 
  • Confirming  appointment of SCC Maui At Large Male Rep.

Per the Maui County Bylaws our County Committee should hold regular meetings at least once every three months.  County Committee Membership consists of the following: County Officers, Precinct Presidents, District Chairs and Chairs of Official Party Caucus.  This is currently around 47 members and we need 40% of those to establish Quorum.   If you are a County Committee Member and not willing to attend quarterly meetings please consider another position within the Party so we can have an active County Committee.  The bylaws also state that County Committee members with valid excuses for nonattendance may give their proxies to the Chair of County Committee or their District Chair.   If you wish to proxy please send an email to Recording Secretary Ben Wilson at  Include your name, position and wether you wish to proxy to your District Chair or County Chair.

Proposed amendments to Maui County Bylaws:

Amendment 1. Article II Section 1.2 – Add “Maui County” to clarify that only “”….Maui County’ Members of the State Central Committee shall constitute the Executive Committee and Maui County Committee.” 

Amendment 2. Article II Section 2.2 – Add “District Councilperson” to clarify that “Should a District Chair, Precinct President or ‘District Councilperson’ be elected as a Maui County officer, that person shall automatically vacate the lesser office.”   Notes: This would make our Maui County Bylaws mirror the State Bylaws Article 2 Section 2N.2

Amendment 3. Article IV.3  Remove the words ‘due to death or resignation’ in first sentence.  Notes: This allows the County Chair to appointment Committee Officers for positions that were not filled at the County Convention and does not limit appointments to filing vacancies only ‘due to death or resignation’ as its currently written.

Amendment 4. Article VI.2 Add second sentence: “Proxies shall be in writing and filed with the Recording Secretary.”

Amendment 5.  Article IX Section 3. Add “Maui County” two times to clarify that only “‘Maui County’ State Central Committee members….  and ‘Maui County’ elected officials shall be delegates to the Maui County Convention.”


Mahalo for allowing me to be of service. If you have any questions please email me at

Maui Democrats!

Tuesday, March 15, we’re mobilizing Defend the Dream events in all 50 states at our schools, libraries, fire stations, hospitals, and parks to stand up against Republican attacks.

If we can mobilize thousands of people again for a national day of action before the March 18 deadline, we’ll give progressive fighters in Congress a better chance to stave off cuts and pass a budget that invests in the Dream.

We’ll show our support for the public workers, services, and institutions making a difference in our lives but we’ll also make sure that Congress knows we’ll hold them accountable for their vote.

In Hawaii alone, the Republican budget would lose 3,100 jobs and many of the programs that are important to the most vulnerable will be slashed.

Please come out Tuesday March 14th – let’s show our solidarity with Wisconsin and help pressure Congress to do the right thing and pass a budget that supports the American dream!
