Mahalo for the Kokua! Thank you for supporting Makana Paris!

Jun 11, 2018

HONOLULU (June 11, 2018) – The Friends of Makana Paris, are grateful to all who joined in supporting Makana’s candidacy for Trustee At-Large at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.  On June 2nd and June 9th, dozens of supporters showed up to “Campaign Parties” to create and distribute campaign kits and signs for volunteers and supporters.

Together, the campaign bundled and sorted thousands of signs, flyers, and tens of thousands of calling cards.  These materials will be distributed across the state – to communities on O‘ahu, Maui, Big Island, Kaua‘i, Lāna‘i, and Moloka‘i.

“Running for office, especially the At-Large seat for OHA, means that we have to work to support the community but also engage and enjoy conversing with constituents.” said Makana Paris.  “Mahalo to everyone who came by!”


If you or your community would like some of these materials to help support Makana, make sure to contact him here!

The events were held at the Real Office Centers at 1110 Nuʻuanu Avenue in Chinatown.
