 (Fri., Nov. 9, 2012)—Mayor Peter Carlisle today released the following statement thanking all City employees for their hard work and dedication:

To the City and County Ohana,

The election is over and it is truly time to come together to ensure we have a smooth transition to the new administration. I ask you to join me in this effort. The citizens of the City and County of Honolulu (the "City") deserve no less.

I also want to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" for your dedication to the City and the public we serve. When I entered this job, I asked you to join me in working on a City that would be affordable, strong and safe for current and future generations. Goals such as these can only be met through the efforts of each team member working harder, smarter and doing the right thing whether or not it is popular. You did just that. Together, all City employees made strides towards meeting these goals.

I am particularly proud of our efforts toward meeting goals of fiscal responsibility during the great recession, which is critical to the security of future generations, and our steadfast commitment to build rail. It is the catalyst that will transform Honolulu into the lean, clean, smart city of the future it is destined to become.

It has been and still is my honor and privilege to serve with you.

Mahalo and Aloha,

Peter B. Carlisle
