Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa hosts the next edition of his one-hour TV show entitled, “Your County with Mayor Arakawa,” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 7, 2012.

The live program features Mayor Arakawa, Finance Director Danny Agsalog, and Budget Director Sandy Baz.  The topic of discussion will be the county’s recent bond-rating and issuance.

Last month, bond rating agencies gave Maui County scores, that were recognized as the highest bond ratings in the state.

Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch rated Maui County Aa1/AA+/AA+, higher than any other county in the State of Hawai’i.
