INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
The Mayors

 

You don’t often see these recognizable figures in the same place at the same time. And when you do, they’re generally attending a ceremonial event or a legislative hearing. This is different. The Mayors who serve different island communities will sit across the table from each other and discuss their island challenges on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. And they’ll take questions from our moderator and viewers. You’ll hear from two mayoral veterans and two relative newbies: Honolulu’s Kirk Caldwell; Hawaiʻi Island’s Harry Kim; Mike Victorino of Maui County; and Kauaʻi County’s Mayor Derek Kawakami. You can phone in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Ala Wai Flood Control Project

 

Plans to prevent massive flooding in Waikīkī have been in the works for years, as worries mount over the threat of a major storm causing the Ala Wai Canal to overflow. Drawn up by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Ala Wai Flood Control Project would take private residential land along the canal for flood mitigation. Property owners object and say there wasn’t enough opportunity for public input. What do you think?
