Mufi Hannemann Former mayor of Honolulu, Hawaii
10 March 2008: Honolulu's first mayor of Samoan descent, as well as the second Mormon to hold the office, Mufi Hannemann is unusual in having worked for all US presidents from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush.
Update June 2010: Mufi Hannemann has stepped down as Mayor of Honolulu to run for state govenor of Hawaii. However, he was defeated in the Democrat Party primaries.
Born in Honolulu in 1952, Muliufi Hannemann's name alone indicates his mixed German-Samoan parentage. Similarly, his 6' 7" frame stood Hannemann in good stead as a basketball and American football player while at school and college. Hannemann attended the private Episcopalian 'Iolani School in the city on a scholarship and was accepted by Harvard, where he graduated cum laude. A Fulbright Scholar, he continued his studies at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
Hannemann returned to Hawaii to teach at Iolani, where he taught history and coached basketball. He then began his public service career as special assistant for the Carter administration in the Department of the Interior.
Hannemann was also appointed to government service in the first administration of George W. Bush, serving in the Department of Labor as a member of the President's Council on a 21st Century Workforce.
In 1994 Hannemann was elected to his first public office, as a member of Honolulu City Council and was re-elected in 1998. He served as council chairman in 1998/1999, retiring from the council in 2000 in order to contest the mayoral election, in which he unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Jeremy Harris. Hannemann sought the mayoralty again in 2004 as Harris, who was thwarted in his run for governor in 2002, faced term limits.
Hannemann is a member of the Mayor Against Illegal Guns coalition and chairs the Tourism, Arts, Parks, Entertainment, and Sports Committee of the US Conference of Mayors.
Mufi Hannemann said it will be a daunting challenge to win the governor's race as an Independent candidate, but he can do it.
Borreca said Hannemann can take advantage of Gov.
"I'm in the middle," Hannemann said. "I'm where most people are. Every survey has shown most people consider themselves independent."
"Mufi will have to explain to voters why exactly they should support an Independent when they have two very viable mainstream party candidates," UH political science professor Colin Moore said.
Hannemann touts his executive experience and his time as mayor of Honolulu.
Hannemann lost his past two Democratic primary races. But he's quick to say he won his last two general elections.
UH political science professor Colin Moore said Hannemann has a strong resume.
"I want to reassure voters that what you see is what you get in terms of someone who's always been sincere about listening," Hannemann said.
Borreca said it's possible for Hannemann to win as an Independent candidate.
Hannemann believes he can beat the odds as the man in the middle.

The residents of Hawaii can be confident that the Hannemann/Chang ticket will work tirelessly to make sure that Hawaii is a great place to earn a living, to support our families, and raise our children. Mayor Hannemann has long been a strong advocate for the working class.
" I appreciate this early endorsement very much and thankful that Local 293 is expressing it strongly now, stated Hannemann.
