Hawaii Republican Party Convention Set for May 11
By News Release @ 12:34 PM :: 3513 Views :: Republican Party

Aloha Fellow Republicans!

From Hawaii Republican Party, May 5, 2019

I’m Greg Lussier, the Chairman of the Maui County Republican Party, your host of the 2019 Hawaii Republican Party State Convention.  The island of Maui is beloved for its world-famous beaches, migrating humpback whales, and magnificent Haleakala.  It’s not surprising Maui has been voted “Best Island in the US” by Conde Nast Traveler from more than 20 years.  Welcome to Maui.

The State Convention will be held at the beautiful King Kamehameha Golf Course, in the elegant and impressive Frank Lloyd Wright designed clubhouse. From the 700 foot elevation that overlooks the Central Maui valley, its 74,000 square feet is divided into three levels and is home to several Hawaiian art masterpieces.  You’ll be enthralled by the panoramic beauty of Mt. Haleakala.  It’s a spectacular setting our strategy and planning our direction of the party for the next election cycle!

The doors will open at 8:00am Saturday, May 11, 2019, to begin the credentialing process.  As we have many guests flying in from so many islands, we recommend that you make reservations with uber, lyft, or taxi service.  It’s about a 20 minute ride from the airport, and if you share a taxi ride with 3 other delegates, it should be around $10 each one way.  Our Credentials Chairman, Celyn Chong Kee, has been working very hard to make sure we have a smooth credentialing process, since we are processing over 200 delegates. There will be a very light continental breakfast of danishes, fruit, coffee and juices, and in the afternoon a beautiful buffet lunch.

In addition to passing resolutions and voting on rules amendments, we are having elections of our state officers.  The Elections Chairman, Mark White, will have detailed instructions upon your arrival at the Convention.  For your planning purposes, the following is a list of the candidates running for office.

 Shirlene Ostrov
 David Hamman

Al Frenzel
Celyn Chong Kee

Jane Tatibouet
Mele Songsong

 Ray L’Heureux
 Courtney Sakai
 Jamie Padilla

 Steven Lipscomb
 Cheryl Sora

 Rojo Herrera

 Ka’eo Kealoha-Lindsey

Marilyn Moniz

We have a lot to accomplish and we will be ending the convention promptly at 4:00pm.  This strict timeline will require focus and discipline of us all, and I know we can do it!  We are looking forward to hosting all of you in Maui for a wonderful convention.  If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me directly at or you can contact your County Chairman and they will contact me.

Safe travels and see you in Maui!

With aloha,

Greg Lussier
