MAYOR GOES TO WASHINGTON TO SEEK FEDERAL FUNDS

 

       KAPOLEI – Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced he is leaving for Washington, D.C., Sunday (January 16).

 

      The mayor will attend the National Conference of Mayors in Washington. He also will meet with U.S. Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, federal Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta and other federal officials. The mayor also has accepted a White House invitation to attend Thursday’s inauguration of President George Bush.

         

     “I pledged to get more federal funds for Honolulu, and this is a necessary step toward that goal,” Hannemann said.

 

      The mayor will return to Honolulu on Friday.  In his absence, Mary Pat Waterhouse, the director-designate of the city Department of Budget and Fiscal Services, will be acting mayor.
