MAYOR CARLISLE'S INAUGURATION THIS FRIDAY
(Wed., Oct. 20, 2010)—Mayor Peter Carlisle's inauguration ceremony will be held this Friday, Oct. 22, in the Mission Memorial Auditorium beside Honolulu Hale.
"I am deeply honored to serve as the 13th elected mayor of the City and County of Honolulu," Carlisle said. "Let's begin this exciting journey together."
Doors to the auditorium will open at 4 pm. Seating will be reserved for special guests, with additional seating available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration tables will be located at the entrance. A large tent will also be set up nearby and equipped with a wide screen television to accommodate the expected overflow of guests.
The ceremony will begin promptly at 5 pm, and will be broadcast live on `Olelo, Channel 49.
Hawaii Circuit Court Judge R. Mark Browning will administer the oath of office, and First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu Senior Pastor Dan Chun will deliver the invocation.
Jimmy Borges will perform the National Anthem, Cathy Foy will perform Hawai`i Pono`i, and Hula Halau Olana will present a Hawaiian cultural performance.
Free parking will be available after 4 pm in the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center Parking Structure, which may be entered from South Beretania or Alapai streets.
The Mission Memorial Auditorium is the red-brick, single-storey building closest to the Diamond Head side of Honolulu Hale.
The ceremony is not being held inside Honolulu Hale because the building's interior courtyard is being utilized as an early polling place for the Nov. 2 General Election.
