"What Are the Races to Watch in the Upcoming Election?"

Thursday, April 17, 8:00 pm

The political season will soon be upon us and Hawaii voters will be casting ballots in the August primary for several key races: gubernatorial, congressional, senatorial, local legislative races, as well as neighbor island Mayoral races. What issues will galvanize voters and get them to the polls? What seats are open and which incumbents face tough challenges?

On the next INSIGHTS on PBS Hawaii, "What are the races to watch in the upcoming election?" Daryl Huff will moderate this discussion.
Scheduled guests:

  • Republican Chairwoman Pat Saiki
  • Democratic Chairman Dante Carpenter
  • Chad Blair, Honolulu Civil Beat reporter
  • Colin Moore, University of Hawaii assistant professor of political science


"How Can Inter-island Travel Become More Affordable?"

Thursday, April 10, 8:00 pm

Sports teams, businesses and travelers have been feeling the sting of rising interisland airfare costs, fewer seats and less cargo space in recent years. Now that go! Airlines has stopped servicing Hawaii, is another carrier prepared to step in and offer competitive ticket prices? Is there any chance we could see a return of inter-island ferry service, after the Superferry's demise? How can we ensure that we're able to travel and transport goods between the islands for business, education and pleasure? On the next INSIGHTS, host Mahealani Richardson moderates a discussion on the question, "How can inter-island travel become more affordable?"


"Is Kakaako Moving in the Right Direction?"

Thursday, April 3 at 8:00 PM

Kakaako's skyline is changing. Planners are trying to carve out a community from the old Quonset huts and gritty warehouses to turn Kakaako into a place to live, work and play. Honolulu's so-called "third city" has been in the works for nearly four decades, but is the vision still what we want? Or is the vision too high-end, too congested, or too dense? On the next INISIGHTS, host Daryl Huff moderates a discussion on the question, "Is Kakaako moving in the right direction?"
