Mayor Caldwell appoints Colleen Hanabusa to HART Board of Directors

News Release from City and County of Honolulu June 1, 2015

Honolulu – Mayor Kirk Caldwell today announced his appointment of former Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa to serve on the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit (HART) Board of Directors.

“The largest public works project in O‘ahu’s history demands the strongest possible oversight,” said Mayor Caldwell.  “I am confident that Congresswoman Hanabusa, with her decades of service as an attorney, as Hawaii Senate President, and in Congress, will closely monitor HART’s spending and safeguard taxpayer money. Being from Waianae, she knows how badly west side residents need this alternative to sitting in some of the worst traffic in the entire nation every day. She worked alongside Senator Dan Inouye to secure the federal funding and now I thank her seeing the project through construction.”

“Mayor Caldwell appointed me to ask hard questions, be independent, and keep the project accountable,” said Hanabusa.  “I am honored by his confidence and support.”

Congresswoman Hanabusa will replace Carrie Okinaga, who is stepping down following the June 25th HART Board of Directors meeting to serve as University of Hawaii Vice President for Legal Affairs and General Counsel.
