Mayor Peter Carlisle

On this episode of INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAII, Dan Boylan hosts Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle live in the PBS HAWAII studios. The mayor must contend with a bleak financial outlook for the city, urge state leaders to keep away from the county's share of the hotel room tax and collect the GET tax surcharge to keep rail on track. What are the Mayor's proposals for increasing user fees and investments in public works projects to spur on job growth? Will there be pay cuts and layoffs this year?

This conversation was recorded on April 7, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
