Statement of Mayor Mufi Hannemann on the death of Senator Edward Kennedy:


"Tonight, we have lost one of America's greatest senators. 


His passion for public service, and his lifetime desire to help the poor, the needy and the less fortunate, were inspirational.


The time Senator Kennedy came to Honolulu in 1986 and endorsed my first ever run for political office remains to this day one of the highlights of my public service career.


On behalf of the people of the City and County of Honolulu, Gail and I extend our heartfelt condolences to Senator Kennedy's wife, Vicki, and the entire Kennedy clan."
