From Kona TEA Party

WHEN: Friday December 2, 2011, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm HST

WHERE: Kona Vistas Community Pavilion, 76-6350 Pualani St, Kailua-Kona (just mauka of Kuakini Chevron)


Speaker: Mr. Lowell L. Kalapa, President, Tax Foundation of Hawaii

This is a presentation of the implications of the 2011 Hawaii State Tax Increases and the Growing State Debt. Mr. Kalapa will speak to the 2011 Tax Increases and Expanding Debt so that residents can consider steps to corrective steps needed. The 2nd hour will be dedicated to Q&A.

The Tax Foundation is a private, nonprofit, non-partisan, educational organization established to research issues confronting governments in the area of public finance, taxation, and public administration.

Of particular interest to Mr. Kalapa have been the challenges that face the Hawaiian community, and he has facilitated board training and strategic planning for agencies such as Queen Lili'uokalani Children's Center, the Native Hawaiian Educational Council, Papa Ola Lokahi, and the Board of Trustees of Kawaiaha’o Church. He has given guidance to many of the member agencies of Aloha United Way as part of the Community Building Evaluation Committee, and in his advisory capacity on the Steering Committee of the Weed & Seed Initiative.

Mr. Kalapa writes a weekly column for the Maui News, The Garden Island, West Hawaii Today, Hawai`i Free Press, and Hawaii Reporter.
