Please Join Us on March 31st – Councilmembers Berg and Gabbard Tamayo Want YOUR Feedback


by Tom Berg

You are invited to attend a town hall meeting at which your opinion takes center stage. Councilmember Tulsi Gabbard Tamayo and I are hosting a gathering at Kapolei Hale next week to get your feedback about the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill disaster and about the City and State’s readiness in times of emergency.

We’ll be talking about what actually happened in January when the runoff from the landfill adversely affected our community. Most importantly, since decisions are being made about the landfill’s future, we want to know how you feel.

Likewise, with recent power outages, strikes by critical workers, tsunami warnings, and with hurricane season right around the corner, we want to know how you feel about governmental responses to recent emergencies and threats of disaster.

Please come to Kapolei Hale on Thursday, March 31st at 7:00 p.m. to have your say about these two serious issues. In addition to hearing from you, please help us to spread the word to all interested parties and invite them to show up and speak their mind.

If you are unable to make it down to this meeting, please send me your comments about these or any issues at With your help, we can ensure that City and State leaders know how the people really feel and what must be done.

Finally, I hope to see you next Thursday evening at Kapolei Hale. Thanks for your help in making our island a better place to live. Till then, have a great week!
