Mayor Bissen announces talk story sessions with Lahaina and Kula residents directly impacted by the August fires

Mayor Richard Bissen will host a series of talk story sessions for residents of Kula and Lahaina who have been impacted by the August 8th fires. Sessions will be held for small groups to offer time for participants to share mana’o and ask questions.

“I’m looking forward to meeting with residents in a more informal setting,” Mayor Bissen said. “Our weekly community meetings in Kula and Lahaina give regular updates on our re-entry and debris removal progress and offer a chance to speak with residents after the updates are given. By adding these sessions, we’ll be able to offer one more way to help those who want a smaller group setting to talk story and ask questions.”

To attend one of the scheduled sessions, residents can register online at or call (808) 270-7855 and ask for assistance with registering for a Talk Story session.
