Hawaii (Big Island) Democratic Dance and Rally Information

With voters soon to vote on candidates from the U.S. Presidency down to the smallest precinct official, Hawaii County Democrats are stepping up to help inform Puna’s citizens of their choices. St. House Districts 3 and 4, which includes all of lower and upper Puna, invite the public to a Dist. 3 & 4 Fundraising Rally and Dance Party on Saturday, Feb. 27.

Democratic Party of Hawaii

Russ Ruderman’s Terrapin Station are the headline performers. The event, which is free to the public, will be held from 6-10 PM at the Eagles Club off Hwy. 130 in Kea’au, according to HCDP Dist. 3 Chair Mike Klungness and Dist. 4 Chair Philip Matlage.

Democratic Party candidates running for any office for which Dist. 3 and 4 residents can vote will have tables set up outside the building to talk to voters and get their names out to the public. Elections this year include races for mayor and county council, state senate and representative, U.S. House and U.S. President. OHA at-large candidates have also been invited.

Another goal of the rally is to help Puna Democrats get to know their fellow precinct neighbors. Matlage and Klungness are encouraging people to run for precinct offices and sign up as state delegates at the March 26 Presidential Preference Poll and Caucus meetings. Funds raised at the event are to help send Puna delegates to the State Democratic Party Convention in Waikiki over the Memorial Day weekend.

The public is invited to bring a potluck pupu or dessert dish to share, questions for the candidates and their dancing shoes. The Eagles Club will maintain the no-host bar (outside liquor not allowed). A fun time should be had by all!!!

For more information, contact Klungness at 968-6789, Matlage at 430-0835, or Frankie Stapleton at 965-8945.
