Caldwell to formally announce candidacy for Honolulu mayor

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 6:26 p.m. HST, Jan 11, 2012

Former acting Mayor Kirk Caldwell is expected to formally announce Thursday his bid for mayor, challenging incumbent Peter Carlisle. 

Caldwell has scheduled a news conference for Thursday morning to announce his plans. The former state lawmaker and city managing director already has been raising money for a potential mayoral bid but has not formally declared his candidacy.
Gov. Ben Cayetano also has been mulling a potential mayoral run and said today that the prospects for him entering the race look "pretty good."

Caldwell served as acting mayor from July 19 to Oct.11, 2010, gaining the position when Mufi Hannemann resigned to campaign for governor.

Carlisle beat Caldwell in a special election in September 2010 to fill the final two years of Hannemann's term.
