Dear Hawaii Republican:
where is HRP in this election year 2016?
Why isn't the party fighting to end the six decades-old, dysfunctional, and corrupt establishment of Democrats and their
unchallenged record of damaging Hawaii? Has HRP
bothered to inform you that this election year is not just to elect a new President, but
more importantly for you to elect your state and local representatives? Or that 2016 is
also a year where certain well-established local Republican party officers will be
up for election?
Section 320 of the rules of the Hawaii GOP
you should already be invited to participate in the Annual District Caucuses of card-carrying Republicans like you throughout the islands
. In fact, the caucuses are
to be held just days from now; during the last week of January and first week of February.
a concerted effort is underway to keep you from feeling invited. It just might be that the Hawaii GOP
does NOT want to actually allow you to participate.
Their silence speaks volumes. Their refusal to make sure you are included and welcomed as a participant
speaks even louder.
Some extremely important matters are on the line in 2016. At these caucuses,
we are supposed to elect delegates and alternates in each of our communities to represent us at the upcoming
county conventions in March and the
state convention in May.
If you don't have enough notice, it's really hard to participate.
And if you aren't able to participate, then you and your neighbors can't elect your delegates.
That means that the corrupt party leadership actually gets to APPOINT WHOMEVER THEY WANT to fill the vacant delegate and alternate seats which belong to you.
That seems to be the plan.
Otherwise you would already know the date, time and location for the caucus in your district. But nobody has sent any announcements to the tens of thousands of Republicans who are eligible to participate.
should have told you by now. But instead,
you'll have to blindly keep a two week window on your calendar completely clear. That way, when they finally tell you about your district caucus, you might be able to participate. But
this is the game that party insiders have played for years in order to retain power.
It's really sick, actually. Since we need more Republicans to be more active if we ever hope to amass the power to unseat Democrats.
But that's not what party leaders want.
They just want to keep others from taking their coveted power away from them. Word has is that
party leaders want to stack the deck by having Fritz and his cronies fill the vacant delegate positions with their buddies
rather than letting real Republicans attend the district caucuses.
Our party should be spreading the word about these annual caucuses.
This is what they
be doing. But
they don't even tell you
about the combination of

. That's pretty important.
But party leaders want to keep the GOP in Hawaii neutral on every issue
like we are now
. That's insane. But they are

We're also electing two high-ranking officers:
National Committeeman and
National Committeewoman. These two share power with the state chairman in representing Hawaii at the RNC or Republican National Committee. The current officeholders (
pictured above) have been
in power too long and don't want reform-minded Republicans chucking them out of power. Hence, the lack of information shared with you and tens of thousands of others about how to attend these annual caucuses any day now.
HIRA wishes we could tell you where to go and when. But the next best thing is we can put you in
direct contact with those who are
supposed to be organizing these annual district caucuses. These are the people who put themselves in power. So
they are the ones who should have the answers.
Call party headquarters today
and ask the extremely highly paid executive director
her generous boss Fritz Rohlfing

Tell him or her that you want to officially participate in the upcoming annual precinct/district caucuses
that party rules
these caucuses to be held. And remind them
why they need to stop making the Hawaii GOP so alienating and non-communicative with its own members
please kokua by showing up if you can attend and you are able to pry the location and time from HRP.
Card-carrying Republicans like you can change our party for the better. Yes,
you can help make it more likely than not that our local GOP candidates can win. Thanks for helping to make the Hawaii Republican Party better than it is.
You deserve the respect of your party so you can plan your life AND be able to
exercise your right to participate.
