Election 2010: CANDIDATES ABERCROMBIE & AIONA – DJOU & HANABUSA
In an unprecedented edition of Insights on PBS Hawaii, host Dan Boylan is joined by the leading candidates for Governor and U.S. Congress for two back-to-back conversations.
Candidates Abercrombie and Aiona are first to join Boylan for a conversation. For the next 45 minutes the candidates answer Boylan's questions as well as questions submitted by the public.
Immediately following Abercrombie and Aiona, the leading candidates for Hawaii's 1st Congressional district, Charles Djou and Colleen Hanabusa, sit down with Boylan for their turn answering questions in the same live conversation format.
"The format is civil discourse. Disarmingly simple--and yet the exchanges are sometimes profound," said Leslie Wilcox, PBS Hawaii President and CEO. "We should expect our leaders of differing perspectives to disagree in a civilized manner, and to truly listen instead of just waiting to speak. We ask that candidates show the sense of respect and fairness that governs normal conversation."
This conversation was recorded on October 14, 2010 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
