Maui County Mayor Alan Arakawa will meet with local residents tomorrow through his “County on Your Corner” program.
The informal idea-gathering meeting will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Mitchell Pau’ole Center in Kaunakakai.
“It is important to connect with people face to face,” Arakawa stated in a news release. ” ‘County on Your Corner,’ which is scheduled in a different location each month, is a good way for myself and members of my Cabinet to interact with the community on the issues that are of most interest to them.”
Maui County Council Chairman Danny Mateo, who holds the Molokai residency seat, will join Arakawa and other county officials.
At least one person will address Mayor Arakawa tomorrow regarding complaints against the Molokai Humane Society. An unsigned flyer has been distributed around Molokai asking the County of Maui to stop funding the MHS until “corrections” are made.
The flyer claims that the newly hired Executive Director Jennifer Whitted and Board Member Matt Goodrich “have grossly steered away from what the purpose of organization was created (sic) and intended to be from its founders.”
