Our urban Honolulu district is big, beautiful, historic, and fun, but as we all know, it takes effort to malama (care for) our neighborhoods and the community.Mahalo for the daily calls, emails, and walk-ins with tips, ideas, complaints, and suggestions to help improve the district.Here are some of the projects you’ve contacted me about that my staff and I are currently working on.
The Honolulu Police Department (HPD) will be conducting impaired driver checkpoints on Oahu throughout the months of September and October. The checkpoints will be set up at unannounced times and locations from Wednesday, August 31, through Tuesday, November 1, 2011, including (but not limited to) the Labor Day and Halloween weekends. The checkpoints are part of the department’s ongoing efforts to reduce the number of collisions on our roadways.
Mahalo to the Neighborhood Board members who have served our community and congratulations to the new members elected in May. I look forward to continue working with these community leaders to address the many concerns of our community that affect all our neighborhoods. Here are your representatives on the Neighborhood Boards of Council District VI for the 2011-2013 term:
Mahalo to Major William Chur of District 5 (from the airport to Punchbowl), Major Marie McCauley of District 1 (from Chinatown to Makiki), and to their great officers and community police teams for hosting me and my staff at their respective stations on February 9th and February 24th. They provided us with an incredible amount of information and insights into what's happening on the ground.
