 GEORGE F. LEE / glee@staradvertiser.comOutgoing Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle says he's leaving office without having made empty promises or setting the stage to blame others.

Former Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle has joined the Honolulu law firm of O’Connor, Playdon & Guben where he will be a partner specializing in local and international affairs.

In his new job, he is expected to serve as a business adviser and help foster relationships between Hawaii and international companies both locally and abroad, according to a release. 

During his two years as mayor, Honolulu hosted a Sister Cities summit, the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation attended by President Barack Obama and the leaders of most other key nations.

Carlisle, 60, left office at the beginning of the year. Before becoming mayor, he was the city’s elected city prosecutor for 14 years beginning in 1996.

Carlisle formally announced his new job during the dedication Saturday of a statue at Pawaa In-ha Park that recognizes the sister-city relationship between Incheon, South Korea, and Honolulu. It was attended by Young-gil Song, Incheon mayor, and current Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell.
