With General Election on the horizon, three Garden Isle residents have been tasked with inviting all the local political candidates who made it through the Primary Election to speak to seniors.

Janice Bond, Helena Cooney and Pam Jardin encourage candidates to swing by the LĪhu‘e Senior Center on Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 9-11:30 a.m. to hear from those who succeeded in their campaign efforts.

“We just need candidate information,” said Cooney in a Facebook post emphasizing the urgency of contacting individuals who are available. “If you are a candidate or a friend of a candidate, please get us your email address in messenger.”

Seniors come together in the big hall to hear the candidates speak about a range of topics, some of which platforms were based on, according to Bond in an email exchange with Kaua‘i Now. “We usually have about 50 seniors who attend.”

The Senior Center opened its doors last April at the LĪhu‘e Neighborhood Center after COVID-19 closed down all the centers in 2020.

LĪhu‘e Senior Center is located at 3353 Eono Street. For more information, call 808-241-6858.
