February 28 Kokua Council program: “Challenges for the Elderly in Hard Times”
This meeting may interest those who are following the governor’s plans to tax pensions etc. I don’t know if Dr. Lum will cover that subject, but the question is sure to come up. Of course, the challenges that those on fixed incomes in Hawaii will face as costs and taxes go up while services are cut are more than just that one issue.
