President, West Maui Taxpayers Association
Member, Rotary Club of Lahaina
PRESS RELEASE-- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAYOR MICHAEL VICTORINO TO DISCUSS WEST MAUI EMERGENCY PLANNING WITH COMMUNITY ON Tuesday, OCTOBER 29th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Keopuolani Hall of Waiola Church – 535 Wainee Street in Lahaina. Co-Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lahaina and West Maui Taxpayer's Association.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend and there is no cost for attendance. There will be snacks and beverages provided compliments of the WMTA.
After a devastating fire and flood event in Lahaina last year, the Mayor's administration has taken a proactive approach to strategically synergize Maui Emergency Management Planning with the West Maui Taxpayer Association's West Maui Emergency Plan.
The Draft WMTA Emergency Plan can be viewed on their web site at www.westmaui.org. WMTA believes what their consultant emergency expert Dennis Terpin has stated and that is...“All planning processes should take an “All Hazards” Approach and the purpose of After-Action Reports allows all stakeholders to identify strengths and areas for improvement through a review of the effectiveness of preparedness and planning efforts for such an incident or an event. Corrective actions and lessons learned will be identified to create opportunities for improvement.
We look forward to the Mayor's leadership in necessary improvements to Emergency Planning based on his review of these After Action Reports on West Maui.
Please contact WMTA for any questions; Joseph D Pluta, President 808-661-7990
Aloha West Maui Property Owner: August 15, 2019
Last month, we asked you, “What can I do or say to get your attention and desire to support our Call to Action for the West Maui Taxpayer’s Association Inc.”; (WMTA)? We are following up with another call to action to update you and respectfully request a response, if you have not already responded.
Please join us as we engage in a dedicated effort to restore prudent financial responsibility from our County governmental representatives. We have been diligently seeking answers to where all this excess tax money is going and are not surprised that it does not seem to have been sufficiently applied towards resolving our many existing “crisis,” situations.
The WMTA has always advocated for fairness in taxation and efficiency in government. Instead, recently, there has been an explosive growth of government, with the added costs associated with more governmental benefits of retirement, etc., that could be avoided with outsourcing public/private for services instead.
You can be a part of the solution or part of the problem. The choice is up to you. Please choose wisely and send us a generous donation today. Mahalo!
Warmest Regards and Aloha,
Joseph D Pluta, President, WMTA
