Hannemann deserves nod


POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 22, 2012

~~<p>U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono's decision to seek the vacancy left by U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka's retirement has created active campaigns by qualified candidates to replace her in representation of outer Oahu and the neighbor islands. Mufi Hannemann's background of accomplishment at all levels of government, most recently as Honolulu mayor, is most likely to provide effective representation of the 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House.</p>
<p>Hannemann has sought a seat in the House twice, losing to Republican Pat Saki in 1986 and to Patsy Mink in the Democratic primary in 1990. He acknowledged at that point &mdash; and concurs today &mdash; that he had yet to pay his dues, and proceeded to win a seat in the Honolulu City Council in 1994, becoming the Council's chairman. He was elected mayor in 2005 and stepped down from his second term, which he had won handily, to run for governor two years ago, losing to Neil Abercrombie.</p>

He was elected mayor in 2005 and stepped down from his second term, which he had won handily, to run for governor two years ago, losing to Neil Abercrombie. OUR ENDORSEMENTS Login for more...
