Major government projects are experiencing that all over the country, and it’s no different here. (Joni Earl, CEO of Sound Transit, spoke to this point when she was in Honolulu for the June transit symposium.) Two early newscasts carried the item, with KGMB giving video treatment to Mayor Mufi Hannemann’s press conference:
Next up: Tuesday evening’s Pearlridge Station Community Workshop at Pearlridge Elementary School, 98-940 Moanalua Road, from 6:30-9 o’clock.
6 am Monday Update:
Today's newspaper coverage of the Mayor's news-making press conference is comment worthy. The Star-Bulletin story includes anti-rail comments by a long-time critic who continues in his apparent belief that the current recession will last forever. That's the only way his projection of a financing shortfall could turn out to be the case. Every piece of good economic news, such as the Council on Revenue's forecast and increasing tourism numbers, eats away at his gloomy prediction.
As for the Advertiser's "coverage".......there isn't any, and maybe that says a lot.
