|Everyone is invited to meet Gov. Neil Abercrombie on Sunday, Dec. 12|
at Pahala Plantation House.
|Ka`u Hawaiian Civic Club will greet Gov. Neil Abercrombie|
when he comes to Pahala on Sunday, Dec. 12.
IN HIS NEW DAY IN HAWAII PLAN, Abercrombie is a supporter of preserving agricultural land, saying that “our dependency on imported food is a problem. We ignore it at our peril. Any disruptions in our food supply – international crisis, natural disasters or labor disputes – would leave us with less than a week of food.” He vowed to help preserve open land for agriculture with federal and state programs. See www.newdayhawaii.org for many of his plans for agriculture, education, health and economic development.
