MAYOR HANNEMANN TO HOLD HONOLULU RAIL TRANSIT UPDATE WEDNESDAY AT THE

HAWAII STATE CAPITOL

 

Mayor Mufi Hannemann invites the public to attend an update on the Honolulu Rail Transit Project on Wednesday, February 10 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the Hawaii State Capitol auditorium.

 

Titled “Jobs, The Economy, And Our Island’s Future,” the update will include a presentation and a question-and-answer session with Mayor Hannemann and a panel featuring economist Paul Brewbaker; U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye’s Chief of Staff Jennifer Goto-Sabas; First Hawaiian Bank board chairman and Hawaii Business Roundtable executive committee member Don Horner; and American Institute of Architects member Shaun Ushijima.

 

“Job creation is the number one priority of every decision maker in Hawaii,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.

“Rail construction is the best source of new jobs in the state and the best economic engine we have during this recession. It is vital we provide the public first-hand information about the status of this important project that will better our quality of life.”
