MAYOR HANNEMANN APPOINTS CALDWELL MANAGING DIRECTOR

Mayor Mufi Hannemann today named Kirk Caldwell as Managing Director for the City & County of Honolulu.

Caldwell is the former Majority Leader in the State House of Representatives.

“I have worked closely with Kirk Caldwell over the past several years, especially on those issues that were of concern to his constituents in Manoa, McCully, Moiliili, Makiki and Palolo,” said Hannemann.  “Kirk was an outstanding legislator who made a difference. He has a passion for public service, and was instrumental in helping to lead the charge with me for the passage last month of the rail transit charter amendment.  I can think of no one better to be our City’s next Managing Director.”

Caldwell succeeds Wayne Hashiro in the Managing Director’s post.  Hashiro yesterday was unanimously approved as the Manager and Chief Engineer for the Honolulu Board of Water Supply.

“I thank Wayne Hashiro for his years of service,”  Hannemann said.  “He certainly has been an extremely valuable member of our City team.  His professional engineering experience was exactly what I needed as we moved the City forward in making improvements to long neglected infrastructure needs.  I  look forward to continuing our strong working relationship, as he will be a member of our cabinet as the Board of Water Supply’s Chief Engineer.”
