HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Sunrise is hosting all the candidates for Honolulu mayor. Tim Garry appeared today. The retired businessman believes that the best person to head the rail project would be one of its staunch opponents, Panos Prevedouros. He wants to appoint Prevedouros as the Special head of integrated transportation. Even if completed, Garry does not think it will help relieve traffic.

On homelessness, Garry said he took a chronic homeless man off the street and hosted him in his house, trained him and then found him a job on Molokai, They tried to get him psychological help through the so-called system that is set up. Right now, he believes the city is just shuffling the homeless around with the current policies and not really helping them in the correct way.

As to why he would make a good leader, Garry said that he cares about Oahu. He would plan to serve just 1 term and vowed not to campaign while in office or take money from special interests.
