Civil Beat Shows Caldwell Ahead in the Race for Mayor

Civil Beat has released their poll showing Mayor Kirk Caldwell with an advantage at 48%, and leading opponent Charles Djou by 7 percentage points. The poll was conducted October 11 through 13, and reached 832 registered voters on Oahu.

Caldwell said, “I’m pleased at the poll results, of course, but we are continuing our hard work to reach the voters as we approach the general election. I think it proves that voters are more interested in real issues and real results, rather than personal attacks. And, when they compare my record to that of my opponent’s – putting people first, instead of just voting ‘No’ – people see which candidate best aligns with their own personal values.

“Personally, I believe Charles’ relentless negative campaigning is taking a toll on voters and just isn’t working. People are tired of his complaining, pointing fingers and offering no workable solutions.

“I believe every vote counts, I am committed to the people and I want to move our City forward and provide a better future for our residents for another four years. I’m looking forward to reaching out to voters and working hard on the campaign every day until Nov. 8th.”

Mayor Caldwell faces Charles Djou in the General Election on November 8th.  Mail-in ballots are expected to arrive to those who registered for absentee voting this week, and early voting opens on October 25th.
