LIHU‘E — Councilman KipuKai Kuali‘i sent an email to the Mayor’s Office Thursday letting Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. know that “concerned members” of the community — advocating for the repeal Act 55 — will stop by the Rotunda today to talk with Carvalho’s staff and drop off communication.
“It’s being called a ‘sit-in,’” Kuali‘i wrote in the email. “I asked folks not to organize a ‘rally’ at this time that would make noise and disrupt folks in their surrounding work areas.”
Kuali‘i asked Carvalho to come out of his office, if he is available, and speak to folks.
Addtionally, North Shore resident Felicia Cowden said children from Kanuikapono Charter School in Anahola will do a “sing-in” at the Rotunda.
The children are intending to chant and make their case for the repeal of Act 55, Cowden said.
The sit-in and sing-in will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Rotunda courtyard, outside the Mayor’s Office in Lihu‘e. Kuali‘i is asking people to bring a sign, a chair, lunch and a letter, email or a note to hand-deliver to Carvalho.
