FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 19, 2013
Kapaa, Kauai — The Native Hawaiian Political Action Committee (NHPAC), led by retired judge William Fernandez, a Kamehameha Schools and Stanford University alumnus, will meet in March to discuss the priorities for the 2014 elections.
“Our March meeting will be very important to lay out our fund-raising and what our support strategy will be on candidates running for state office in 2014,” Fernandez said from his home in Kapaa. “Every election is important, and at my age my view of the political curve is long. There is no question that a significant political era is closing and a new one beginning. Hawaiians must be and will be very much a part of it.”
The March meeting will include business and community leaders, including civic and homestead leaders.
“We have work to do,” Fernandez said. “Not only are we interested in supporting state legislative candidates to win, we also want to encourage a new generation to consider public service.”
Founded in 2008, NHPAC is nonpartisan and dedicated to engage the priorities of Native Hawaiians through the election of knowledgeable candidates and the registration of eligible voters.
