All 5 candidates were in attendance, answering questions and discussing the issues important to Puna, the county’s fastest growing district.
Kale Gumapac, Wayne Joseph, Emily Naeole, Gary Safarik and Kaniu Stocksdale took questions from moderators Hunter Bishop and Mike Hale. The format gave all of the candidates a chance to answer, and allowed a closing rebuttal to the candidate who started off. At the end, the candidates all gave a 4 minute closing statement.
The primary election is on September 20th, 2008.
