Hawaii Congressional District 1 Candidate Forum – March 19, 2018

March 19, 2018

05:30 PM - 08:00 PM


Join Hawaii Pacific University’s Department of Communication for a candidate forum for the Congressional District 1 race. Former Hawaii Attorney General, now Lieutenant Governor, Doug Chin, Representative Kaniela Ing, Calvin Griffin, Senator Donna Kim have stated they plan to attend the CD 1 forum. Also invited were Zachary B. Burd, John Cipolla, Honolulu Councilmember Ernie Martin, Palasi “Sam” Puletasi, and Michelle Tippens.

The forum will feature opening and closing statements from each candidate with a question and answer period in between. Questions will be asked by the moderator. Each candidate will answer the same question in a rotating order.

“We envision the forums as a way for the candidates to help introduce themselves to the state’s voters and to provide us with as much information as possible in making our choices,” stated HPU Chair and Professor of Communication John Hart.

Hart noted the department hopes to follow the forums with a more traditional debate event closer to the elections.
