LIHU‘E — A scheduling issue is forcing a format change to virtual from in-person for an upcoming town hall to be hosted by Rep. Jill Tokuda.
The Second Congressional District representative said the switch was necessitated by unforseen changes in the congressional calendar, leading to her having to be present to vote on the House floor in Washington, D.C.
“While my official duties are keeping me from being home to do these town halls, continuing to connect with my constituents is important to me,” said Tokuda in a statement on Friday, Oct. 27. “I look forward to being back on Kaua‘i soon, but until then I hope a virtual platform will allow even more individuals to participate.
The virtual town hall will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Hawai‘i Standard Time. People are encouraged to RSVP on Tokuda’s website under the events section or at tokuda.house.gove/events/town-halls.
Residents and business owners are also welcome to submit any questions or concerns they would like addressed at the town hall. Anyone with questions or needing assistance should call 808-746-4906.
Tokuda, who was elected to Congress in November 2022, is a member of the House Committee on Agriculture, House Committee on Armed Services and the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.
