Description

Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann, speaking for the nation's mayors, pressed for the creation of a Cabinet level Secretary of Culture and Tourism charged with forming a national policy for arts, culture and tourism. Hannemann gained full support for his action plan on elevating travel and tourism to a national policy priority from the more than 250 mayors from across the nation. It is the first time that Tourism and Arts is a part of the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 10-Point Plan "Strong Cities…Strong Families…for a Strong America." The mayors also created the Task Force for Chicago’s 2016 USA Olympic Bid, led by Trenton NJ Mayor Douglas H. Palmer, Miami Mayor Manuel A. Diaz(incoming President of the mayors), Honolulu’s Mayor Hannemann, and Chicago's Richard Daley. Its mission is to build private public partnerships to support Chicago’s bid. Mayor Daley expressed appreciation for Mayor Hannemann’s leadership and vision and knowing that Chicago’s successful bid would create opportunities for all American cities to benefit.
