When Mufi Hannemann and running mate Les Chang officially filed yesterday to run for Governor and Lieutenant Governor they wasted no time in going after a big issue. Hannemann proposed bringing the Superferry, or similar large scale inter island ferry service back to the Islands.
According to AP:
Hannemann said Wednesday that it will not be easy, but he will take a different approach than his predecessors, who introduced an inter-island ferry that failed within two years.
“It’s come up on numerous occasions that people want to see the Superferry come back,” Hannemann said. “And I said, ‘You know what? I think I can take a crack at this again.’ “
Hannemann said he succeeded in building coalitions to push for a rail system on Oahu, and he could use that experience.
