City's rail rendering

BY BOBBIE SLATER – A week from this coming Saturday, July 21, we are holding our final party to raise funds for the lawsuit and we want to see you there.

Volunteers have put in much effort to make this a great event. Dr. Jeremy Lam has provided his oceanfront home and we have a great silent auction. For example:


A 2-3 hour sail for 4 on Kaneohe Bay on a TransPac yacht. This is a beautiful way to see the bay, and a lovely lunch is included.

A private tour of the Pacific Aviation Museum, for 12 people, with six aviation museum bags and caps!

A lovely home for a week on Malaekahana beach, which sleeps eight.
An escape to Malaekahana would be perfect for a family birthday!

Those who were at the last fundraising party at the Burns’ home will remember a memorable and fun occasion with great food and drink with some great deals in the silent auction. Please let your friends know of this party. You and your friends will enjoy meeting other people who have been working so diligently on this issue, and hear the latest on the lawsuit from Governor Cayetano and the other plaintiffs.

Two years ago, Honolulu voters were told in the City flier“there would be no additional cost to create the transit authority as it utilizes existing staff and facilities.

The same flier promised that if we voted for HART it would lead to “enhanced transparency and accountability.”

HART now occupies three full floors of swanky Ali’i Place. It has hired CEO Dan Grabauskas this spring at a cost of nearly $1 million for a three-year contract. And they are spending $2 million annually for public relations. You might wonder why so many public relations people are necessary; disseminating misinformation is their full-time job.

Let us put an end to this and drive a steak through the heart of the monstrous elevated rail in downtown Honolulu. It will cost our citizens dearly forever.
