The West Maui Taxpayers Association is pleased to announce "Candidates Night 2016”
SAVE THE DATE
It is an honor and privilege for the West Maui Taxpayers Association (WMTA) to invite voters in West Maui to participate in the WMTA 2016 Candidates Night. The 2016 WMTA Candidates Night is on Thursday, August 25, 2016, at the Lahaina Civic Center beginning at 5:00 PM with Registration & dinner service by local businesses and restaurants. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE!
West Maui is a unique and vibrant community that provides employment opportunities and generates significant tax revenues for all levels of government. WMTA is also unique in that our mission is to promote efficient use of the taxes generated locally to invest in the infrastructure, services and amenities that help ensure that West Maui remains one of the best places to live, work and visit in the world.
The WMTA Candidates Night is the only forum of its kind in West Maui, and WMTA has been providing this forum for over 30 years. The tradition for the WMTA Candidates Night is to invite all Federal, State and County candidates appearing on the West Maui ballot to give West Maui voters an opportunity see the candidates up close and personal, while building awareness of West Maui issues. For those offices with both candidates attending, there will be an opportunity for each candidate to give an introductory statement followed by a question or two presented in a debate format. If only one candidate is present, or the office is not contested, the candidate will have an opportunity to introduce themselves to the voters with a short statement. This event will be broadcast live on Akaku Community TV, and recorded for re-broadcast as well.
WMTA is a non profit 501 c 4. WMTA, as a dedicated Lobbyist organization, has a mission for our West Maui Community. The objectives of this Organization are to associate the interests, concerns, and efforts of residents and taxpayers of the West Maui area, and others interested in the orderly development and improvement of the area, in a cooperative effort. whether provided by, or to be provided by, the State or County governments, or by others.
