Hawai’i Public Radio is cancelling its scheduled Honolulu Mayoral Candidate Forum on Monday, July 11.

Charles Djou withdrew from the event, several days after his campaign agreed to take part.  Sam Aiona of the Djou campaign blames a scheduling conflict, although he had confirmed Djou’s participation on Friday.  Djou told HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka the cancellation was because of a “miscommunication.”
