Senator Dan Inouye endorses Caldwell for Mayor

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii's Senior Senator Daniel Inouye has endorsed Kirk Caldwell for Honolulu Mayor.

According to Senator Inouye, "I first met Kirk when he worked for me in Washington in the 1970's.  His dedication and thoughtful approach ensuring that our islands become a better place to live, work, and play has always impressed me.  You can trust Kirk to fight for our best interests at heart and focus on the future.   He is honest, smart, and trusted, and that will never change.   I am urging everyone to support and vote for Kirk Caldwell in the general election."

Caldwell said, "I am grateful for Senator Inouye's support and endorsement.  He is a man of vision, believing in our future, and has given everything for our state, delivering jobs and investments which benefit us all."

"I have always been a supporter of rail because it will provide much needed relief for West Oahu and offers new real transit solutions to our growing communities.   Ben Cayetano's plan for more buses is not the way to the future and will only create additional congestion to Oahu's traffic problems," Senator Inouye added.
