The Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi Political Action Committee has published its KOHO PONO report card in the Ka Wai Ola newspaper of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. You may also find it at the website kalahuihawaiipoliticalactioncommittee.net.
This report card gives letter grades to legislators for the way they voted on issues that affect Hawaiians. It also contains legislators’ comments beyond a yes or no answer to questions posed by KPAC.

According to Leiānuenue Niheu, chair of the Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi Political Action Committee:
“We have aloha for everyone running for public office in the upcoming Primary Election 2020. The personal testimony submission, endorsement, support, kakoʻo, balota of the individual members of the Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi Political Action Committee do not reflect the opinions, actions and positions of the Officers of the Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi Political Action Committee, and the Steering Committee members, a.k.a. KLH Ke Komike Kalaiaina. KPAC does not endorse any candidate, but it does offer information.”
