Monday September 26--Rep. Tom Brower talks about Waikiki “Sustaining the Gateway to Hawaii, Present Problems, Future Vision”
by Larry Geller
Waikiki is the engine of the state’s economy, and also the epicenter of efforts to deal with homelessness, prostitution, and APEC. Strange bedfellows, true, but that’s Waikiki for you.
If you’re near town on Monday, and have questions about Waikiki and APEC, or trains, tourism, or anything else related to that section of Honolulu, bring them over to Harris Church, enjoy an (optional) cheap lunch, and get some answers.
Here is the announcement:

Over 160,000 jobs are directly and indirectly affected by visitor expenditures.
