“The greatest satisfaction of serving as Mayor is the opportunity it provides to improve the everyday lives of people across O‘ahu every single day.”
I support the re-election of Kirk Caldwell as Mayor of Honolulu. I’ve worked closely and collaboratively with Kirk and can count on him as a partner to move the City forward.
Great cities are the foundation of our country, so it’s important that we elect mayors with vision, integrity, and passion for the job. That’s Kirk Caldwell. I support Kirk for Mayor because he cares about working families and the urban fabric within which they live. He continues to improve the quality of basic infrastructure, and he has been a champion of rail which will be a game changer for Honolulu. Kirk demonstrates local values and manages with a local heart. I see the changes and improvements when I come home to Honolulu, and I urge voters to give him the opportunity to finish the work that he has started.
It is critical that the Governor and Mayor trust each other and work closely to resolve our toughest problems, such as homelessness. Kirk and I formed a strong team of state and city departments to tackle this issue. Together, we’ve made real progress. I want to continue working with him, and that’s why I’m supporting Kirk Caldwell.
When Kirk asked me to serve on the HART Board it was with the condition that I be totally transparent, ask the hard questions, and give him straight answers. He wants us all to do what’s right for Honolulu. That’s why I agreed, and why I now support him as mayor.
I’ve known Kirk almost all my life, from the time I was a small child. During this time, I’ve come to know him to be trustworthy, a man of his word, hardworking, and someone who has great aloha for Hawai‘i and its people. We need Kirk Caldwell’s experience and character in Honolulu Hale.
I endorse and support Kirk Caldwell because we share the same Democratic values. He and I know that we are stronger as a community when we work together, when we care for each other, and we demonstrate civility and aloha. Especially this year, with so much negativity going on in national politics, I appreciate that Kirk always works hard to do the right thing for Honolulu residents.
Mayor Caldwell takes on the challenges facing the city every day with aloha. He’s honest, hardworking and trustworthy. And he’s the only candidate with the ability to secure the needed funding to finish the rail line that Senator Inouye and I worked on for years…all the way to Ala Moana. That’s why I’m supporting Kirk.
I’ve worked closely with Kirk in the last couple of years. I’m impressed with his ability to run the City and his commitment to the job. But it’s his heart and his love of the people that wins my complete endorsement. I’m in his corner.
I’m supporting Kirk Caldwell for Mayor because he has proven to be a leader of integrity and action. He does what he says he’s going to do. Kirk is someone who I trust to take care of the city and make it a better place for our children and grandchildren.
Through the course of the mayoral campaign, Charles Djou has filled the airwaves and our mailboxes with an impressive quantity of misinformation, distortions and false claims. Let’s look at the top 7.
The Sierra Club of Hawaii has endorsed Kirk Caldwell for reelection. It is the first mayoral endorsement since 2004.
For the second time, the newspaper has selected Kirk, saying “Caldwell is the best bet to tackle the city’s major challenges…he should be returned to office for a second term.”
“Great cities are the foundation of our country, so it’s important that we elect mayors with vision, integrity, and passion for the job,” said Obama. “That’s Kirk Caldwell.”
Civil Beat has released their poll showing Mayor Kirk Caldwell with an advantage at 48%, and leading opponent Charles Djou by 7 percentage points.
