Members of the public are encouraged to participate and make suggestions. 

Each of the town halls are set for 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will be broadcast live on Olelo. 

Here's the lineup: Oct. 17 at Blaisdell Center, Hawaii Suites (town area); Nov. 13, Waialua High School cafeteria (Waialua, Haleiwa communities); Nov. 19, Kahuku High School cafeteria (Koolauloa community); Dec. 5, Waianae District Park (Waianae, Nanakuli, Maili); and Dec. 10, Kaiser High School cafeteria (East Oahu). 

In addition, Caldwell announced today that he will hold a Twitter Town Hall from noon to 1 p.m. Dec. 9. Participants will be able to tweet questions to @MayorKirkHNL and he will respond to as many as possible.  

This past May, Mayor Caldwell held town hall meetings in the following areas: Aiea/Pearl City, Kaimuki, Wahiawa, Kapolei, Kaneohe, and Kalihi.

It's like these comment sessions, people are allowed to comment and once in a while, a gem of an idea will help writers for future assignments. By and large though many comments are just for social interaction, even those on Rail.
