HART selects CEO finalist at $245,000 salary plus benefits

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 03:51 p.m. HST, Feb 24, 2012


The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation today announced the selection of Daniel Grabauskas as finalist for the agency's chief executive officer position.

Grabauskas is chairman and senior strategic adviser of the Bronner Center for Transportation Management and former general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

The full board is scheduled to vote on the selection after taking public testimony at its March 1 meeting.

"Dan Grabauskas is a proven leader in the transit industry and we are pleased to be considering him for HART's top job,"Keslie Hui, chairman of the HART board's human resources committee, said in a statement.

If approved by the board, Grabauskas would begin work in mid-April.

"There is much that I have to learn about the project, and will rely on our staff, our elected leaders, stakeholders and the community for support in my transition," Grabauskas said in a statement. "I am a strong believer in open and honest communication and look forward to hearing many perspectives on how best to get the job done."

Grabauskas' proposed three-year contract includes an annual base salary of $245,000, a $36,000 a year housing allowance and a $6,000 annual transportation allowance. The proposal also includes the potential for a $35,000 annual performance bonus. 

Toru Hamayasu has been serving as the agency's interim chief executive and will continue in that role until the new CEO arrives. He will then continue on with the project in a senior leadership position, HART said in its news release.

What happens if we do not get federal funding from the Republican leaders? Is there a clause, that if we do not rail, he is terminated , or is he paid for 3 years to do nothing because we are not going to have rail.

Looks like he probably would, this from Boston.com: "The board, by a 5-to-3 vote, agreed to pay Grabauskas $327,487 to settle the remaining nine months of his contract, including salary, vacation, and sick days. Under the terms of the deal, Grabauskas will receive $215,000 in base compensation, $44,000 for unused vacation days, $32,000 for unused sick days, and $35,000 in deferred and other pay. He will also receive full health insurance until his contract expires on May 15, 2010."

This guys was involved in the "big dig" which is SECOND TO NONE in the world for big, over budget, long behind schedule, government projects that was continuously plagued by problems over and over again. Certainly Honolulu deserves this man specifically chosen by the brain dead (or should I say absent) HART board members. If you want a failed project to succeed at being another spectacular government boondoggle, then YES! We have found our man. It never cease to amaze me how bad HART is mis-managing this from the very start.

WOW. A $2,000 a month housing allowance and $500 a month transportation allowance in addition to a monthly salary of around $20,833 while Rail is not built yet. And what is galling about this is that we property owners will have to face paying scandalous salaries of HART officials and employes EVERY YEAR when sanity and common sense would have saved all of us property owners being drowned by the financial tsunami from Rail after it starts operation.

NanakuliBoss, you are very wrong about property taxes not being affected. They will go up to cover cost overruns, which are inevitable in projects like this. And if your property values go up because you live near the rail line, so will your property taxes go up because they are based on assessed value.

Of course assessments go up because of value going up, but show me where cost over runs will be tacked to your property tax. You have a link to some government website that say this or is it your opinion?

Kuniarr wrote:
Since you claim that cost over runs will not be tacked to property tax, do tell us where the source of the money will come to pay for the cost overruns. Your "of course assessments go up because of value going up" destroys your argument concerning Rail and property tax because under that situation Rail would be the direct cause of an increase in property tax influenced by Rail.

There will be no cost overruns. Change orders are inevitable. Cost overruns aren't. There is a contingency of more than $800,000. Yes, there will be change orders, like there are on every construction project, but that is exactly what the contingency is for. The FTA stated that the size of the contingency was more than adequate for the size of the project.

Who's to say that property taxes will not be affected? If you live near the rail line and your property value goes up, then it stands to reason that your property tax (out-of-pocket dollars) will go up because your assessed valuation goes up. Oh, and by the way, when Hanneman was mayor, he said that property taxes will not be used for rail. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), Hanneman is no longer mayor and the non-use of property taxes for rail is NOT codified in law; then or now. Besides, the politicians can change the laws anyway so the public can still get screwed.

After construction, the staff of HART will shrink, no need for all the engineers and construction staff. such illogical thinking of anti-railers.

How in the world can anyone be expected to live an executive lifestyle on a mere allowance of 3000 dollars per month? Shame on HART for even suggesting such a lowball figure.How will Italian rail or construction execs view the surroundings one can only afford for such meager rent or mortage? Tax payers will need to rent an "official" entertainment facility for rail functions. A 5 plus billion dollar investment in our keiki's future choo choo should have more perk funds available for our new transit oriented elite.

He will be paid to learn about the proposed Rail. He's also being taught by biased elected leaders and stakeholders about the project. Does he know that a lot of the community doesn't approve of the rail, and that there is a chance that a new mayor can stop the rail from being built?

"There is much that I have to learn about the project, and will rely on our staff, our elected leaders, stakeholders and the community for support in my transition,".................Unfortunately our mentally in Government or Private sector positions is to bring in people from the mainland who have no knowledge of the local landscape, the business they are being hired for or experience running a business or project in Hawaii. The results are always the same. The new guy gets a huge salary and then let's the local staff run the show for which he gets credit for. We went through this exact situation in the late eighties when Frank Fasi brought in carpet baggers from the mainland who were smooth with the mouth and lacking in knowledge. This is the real reason Ben Cayetano is against rail. Those mainland hires meet with Cayetano and lie to Cayetano about rail. Fasi eventually fired those transportation experts. Every since then Cayetano lost his trust in mainland experts. If Cayetano becomes Mayor hiring a so called expert from the mainland could spell doom for rail.

Hey all you anti-railers, As I said in the past, I am guilty of thinking that H-3 was a bad idea until after it was built and traffic from the Windward side to town and back was lessened greatly. If 20% of Hawaii people use the rail, imagine 10% less traffic on the freeway. You think this wouldn't help? Ewa Beach to town traffic is a joke! You want more buses? What do you think accounts for a lot of the traffic on the back streets? Federal monies are helping us with this and if all you anti-railers fail to see that if we stop this now, we will probably never be able to get assistance from the Federal government for this project again. Our .5% tax (Honolulu County) will go into the general coffers and wasted anyways, so let it go to good use!
