70 Republicans Running for Oahu Neighborhood Board
By News Release @ 1:19 AM :: 7300 Views :: Honolulu County, Republican Party



From Honolulu County Republican Party

Aloha,     April 30, 2017

The freedom to vote is our most important political right and is a cornerstone of our democracy.  The Honolulu County Republican Party encourages you to exercise that right and begin the fight to take back our state one neighborhood at a time.

“A vote for President may be a grain of sand on the beach, but your local votes can be rocks in a bucket… local elections are the ones that have the most significant impact on your daily life.” John Kinnear author

Excerpt from Oahu’s Neighborhood Board System Member Guidebook:

"The Responsible City”, was chosen by the City Charter Commission when it presented the revised City Charter to the voters in 1972. A major component of this concept is full citizen participation in government so that the powers of the City shall properly serve and advance the aspirations of its citizens.

However, the initiative for action must come from the people. While Neighborhoods and Neighborhood Boards were established under the Charter as a means to increase and assure effective citizen participation, their creation and implementation are optional.

The Neighborhood Plan, which designates boundaries and provides for neighborhood formation, leaves many decisions open to the community so that a neighborhood-specific approach can be implemented.

A Neighborhood Board consists of community residents – your friends, family, and neighbors.  They represent you!

Calling Young Republicans

The Young Republicans is an organization for members of the Republican Party of the United States between the ages of 18 and 40, though some of which have outreach programs for those between 13 and 18.  It has both a national organization and chapters in individual states.

Young Republican Clubs are both social and political in nature.  Many of them sponsor various social events and networking events for members. In addition, Young Republican Clubs assist Republican political candidates and causes.

For more information about joining the Hawaii Chapter contact Jennifer Anderson at

“Our young leaders from across the country are fighting to keep the American Dream alive by electing Republicans, supporting conservative values and impacting the government of the next generation.” Young Republicans National Federation
