Area Boards Seek Candidates
Residents can now file to run in Oahu’s upcoming neighborhood board elections, set for April 24-May 17.
Elections are held every two years, and any resident who is 18 years old by Feb. 22, 2013, and lives within a board’s boundaries is eligible to run. West Oahu area boards speak for the Ewa, Aiea, Pearl City, Waipahu and MakakiloKapolei-Honokai Hale communities to advise government on concerns ranging from zoning disputes and bulky-item pickup dates to land use and criminal activities. The boards meet monthly and also may conduct public forums and educational programs.
Candidates should apply online at www1.honolulu.gov/nco. Those without Internet access may call the Neighborhood Commission Office at 768-3717. Mailed forms must be postmarked by the deadline date, Feb. 15. The term of service will be from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2015.
