Ben Cayetano

Former Hawaii Gov. Ben Cayetano, who is involved with two significant lawsuits in Hawaii, will headline the Smart Business Hawaii Annual Conference on Wednesday, January 9, discussing “Ending Corruption in Hawaii.”

Cayetano has a lawsuit pending against the Hawaii Carpenters Union, PRP Hawaii, its director John White, its board members and advertising agency after PRP spent $3 million on attack ads and push polls trying to ensure Cayetano was not elected Honolulu mayor.

Cayetano is also the lead plaintiff in a federal lawsuit filed in May 2011 against the city and federal government over the city’s planned $5.2 billion elevated steel on steel rail project.

There will be a number of other notable speakers at the Smart Business Hawaii’s 37th Annual Business and Investment Conference at Ala Moana Hotel.

  • Honolulu Special FBI Agent Tom Simon will discuss “Safeguarding Business from Scams and Cybercrime”;
  • Senate Vice President Donna Mercado Kim will give a preview of the 2013 legislature;
  • Hawaii Best Selling Author and Marketing Expert Bob Sigall will entertain with “Hawaii Business Trivia;” and
  • Matt Kibbe of Freedom Works will talk about “How to Implement a Freedom Philosophy.”
