The election for Honolulu mayor will be held on August 13, 2016 (the primary election).
If no candidate receives more than fifty percent of the vote, the two candidates who received the most votes will face off again on November 8, 2016 (the general election).
It was reported today that three major candidates will run for Honolulu mayor:
Kirk Caldwell is the current mayor, seeking re-election.
Charles Djou is a former city councilman and congressman, seeking executive office this time.
Some TV stations have reported that Honolulu’s big rail mass transit project could be the major issue that decides the mayor’s race. I respectfully disagree. The rail project is very important, but the homeless crisis is much more critical.
