Civil Cafe: Should Hawaii Hold A Constitutional Convention?

This October, Civil Beat is partnering with Hawaiian Airlines to host back-to-back panel discussions on two critical questions that will appear on the November ballot. On October 9, join us as we discuss holding a state constitutional convention, which has been seen as a way to challenge the status quo and place power back into the hands of voters. We’ll weigh the pros and cons, discuss its implications and touch on specific aspects of the proposal that are still up for debate. The event will be moderated by Civil Beat’s politics and opinion editor, Chad Blair, and feature local experts and commentators.

Civil Cafe: Should We Use Property Taxes To Fund Schools?

This October, Civil Beat is partnering with Hawaiian Airlines to host back-to-back panel discussions on two critical questions that will appear on the November ballot. On October 2, we’ll consider a constitutional amendment to fund public education. This proposition mirrors other states in that it would give our Legislature the power to impose new taxes on investment properties. We’ll weigh the pros and cons, discuss its implications and touch on specific aspects of the proposal that are still up for debate. The event will be moderated by Civil Beat’s politics and opinion editor, Chad Blair.
