Maui Mayor Charmaine Tavares was among 170 mayors invited to participate in a conference call with members of President-Elect Barack Obama’s transition team.  The hour-long conference call was coordinated by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and centered around Obama’s plan to stimulate the economy.

Tavares said, “While our isolation as an island state and dependency on the visitor industry make us unique, the inclusion of Maui County in these important conference calls with the Obama Administration also stresses that our economic challenges correspond with many other counties across the country.”
