I’ve had the honor of going door-to-door within Kalihi, Kahauiki and Kapalama, and I’ve met wonderful people who have shared stories about their lives and their visions for our community. Our communities are full of leaders: mothers and fathers who have raised independent children; aunties who feed keiki and uncles who shelter veterans; fixers of sidewalks; future legislators; fishers of men; cooks, dog-watchers and bus drivers; valleys full of leaders who are moving our community forward.
Come to celebrate these community leaders in a series of “purok” (Ilokano for neighborhood) meals this week at homes throughout State House District 28. These will be simple meals – our goal is primarily to feed our need for community and secondarily to feed our stomaches. Here’s the schedule.
