Candidate Forum Held At UH Hilo
On October 13, 2016 Young Democrats of Hawaii and Global HOPE held a candidate forum for state and county races.
Candidates Moana Keli’i, Eileen Ohara, Mark Nakashima, Byron Young, Kealoha Pisciotta, and Joy SanBuenaventura attended the forum as panelists. Donovan Shouse and Shannon Matson moderated the event.
Panelists asked a variety of questions ranging from how candidates will address the expiring landfill in Hilo and how they will support student rights.
A “lightening round” of 6 questions were asked where candidates could only answer ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ Candidates were then given 90 seconds to clarify their answers. For entire forum see video below.
