by Larry Geller

Let me give a plug for Kokua Council's 10th Annual Community Forum, which takes place today at Harris Church at noon (optional lunch from11:30).

The forum will both alert the community to some of the issues of concern, and at the end there will be a vote to choose the most important issues, which Kokua Council will then use to set its advocacy priorities for 2014.

Speakers include:

Rep. Cynthia Thielen

Victor Geminiani, Hawaii Appleseed LEJ

Sen. Suzanne Chun Oakland

Paola Rodelas, Aikea Hawaii

Wes Lum, Executive Office on Aging

Henry Curtis, Life of the Land

Elizabeth Bethea, Elderly Affairs Division, C&C of Honolulu

Kathryn Xian

H. Doug Matsuoka

Bruce McCullough, Hawaii Alliance of Retired Americans

Scott Foster, on marriage equality legislation

Jim Shon

Laura Manis, for John McDermott on care home inspections

Larry Geller, on Mayor's Age-Friendly City Citizens Advisory Council

The first panel begins at noon at Harris United Methodist Church, Vineyard Blvd. & Nuuanu Ave. Plenty of free parking. Optional lunch with $5 donation.
