Windward Candidates Forum July 13 At WCC

A candidates forum July 13 in Kaneohe will take on a patriotic feel when the crowd is served hot dogs, chips, drinks – plus the chance to meet and talk with eight Windward office-seekers.

Sponsored by the Kailua Chamber of Commerce, the event runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the Atrium at Windward Community College (Akoakoa building), featuring candidates for three recently redrawn state legislative districts.
