Please forward this today to all Hawaiians and our supporters.

Your help is urgently needed regarding this coming Wednesday╩╗s Office Of Hawaiian Affairs Committee On Resource Management meeting at 10 AM at OHA headquarters, 560 N. Nimitz Hwy, Suite 200, 96817 in Honolulu.

The main item to be discussed and voted on by the Committee is: RM #17-06: To Approve SOQ No. RM 2017-35, Requesting Statements Of Qualifications For Auditing Services.

RM #17-06 is both the authorization to retain an auditor to perform the independent audit of OHA, and is the final approval for funding of the audit itself.

It is extremely important that as many OHA beneficiaries as possible be there to testify in favor and support of this action, as this is what will permit the audit to go forward.

Highly reliable sources are reporting much talk behind the scenes by certain OHA trustees on how to possibly derail or delay Wednesday╩╗s vote on this item.

Please be there in person to testify in favor and support of this measure to move the audit forward.

If you're not able to be there in person Wednesday, please contact the OHA trustees beforehand to demand they vote “YES" on Wednesday for this critically important item.

Please contact OHA today -
