Honolulu Mayor: Caldwell Rolls Over Cayetano

Honolulu Mayor: Caldwell Rolls Over Cayetano
By Nathan Eagle and Nick Grube 11/06/2012

Former Honolulu managing director Kirk Caldwell rolled to victory Tuesday night, defeating former Gov. Ben Cayetano to become Honoluluís next mayor.

With all precincts reporting, Caldwell prevailed 53 percent to 45 percent.

"The people have spoken," Caldwell told the crowd gathered at Aloha Tower. "We did it together. Not fighting, not blaming, not talking about problems caused by someone else, but by talking about solutions to problems."


The candidates are on opposite sides of the cityís $5.26 billion rail project. Cayetano wanted to kill it and Caldwell wanted to salvage it.
