The LahainaTown Action Committee (LAC)  collaborated with local government officials to organize a crucial meeting for our valued members and businesses most affected by the Lahaina Wildfire. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Senator Lynn DeCoite and her office for their invaluable support in coordinating a panel designed to specifically address the questions presented by our members.

To access the meeting recording, please follow the link below or reach out to if you need assistance accessing the video. Furthermore, we are fully committed to producing a comprehensive document that compiles the questions submitted by LAC members alongside the responses from government officials. This document will be promptly shared with our dedicated LahainaTown Action Committee members and made available on our website for the benefit of the wider community.

In these intricate and sensitive times for Lahaina, we recognize the paramount importance of transparency and inclusivity. While our primary focus was addressing the immediate needs of our members, it is clear that the entire West Maui Community is seeking answers and solutions. We sincerely hope that by sharing this meeting video with the public, we can inspire other groups to seek the same level of attention and responsiveness for their unique needs.

We deeply regret any confusion or inconvenience caused by misleading communications regarding attendance at this meeting without prior registration. These messages and social posts were disseminated by individuals seeking to divide us. The survival and recovery of Lahaina from one of the most significant natural disasters in recent history depends on our collective efforts. If you were turned away today and are a business within the impact zone or on West Maui in general, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our dedicated board president, Sne Patel, is readily available to personally address your concerns.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Together, we can foster a more informed and engaged community.

Sne Patel, LAC President
