We’ve been producing journalism in the public interest for 10 years, with the aim of making Hawaii a better place, and we have no plans to stop any time soon. But we need your help to keep this critical work going strong. For a limited time, donations to Civil Beat will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from the NewsMatch program!
Civil Beat has raised $32,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
This is the first time Tim Garry, a retired businessman in the construction industry, has run for elective office, but he doesn’t plan to make a second career of it.
He tells Pod Squad host Chad Blair he’d serve just one term if elected Honolulu mayor and donate most of his salary to charity. During that term, he said he’d upgrade the city’s Department of Planning and Permitting, as well as Oahu’s lifeguard services.
Listen to the podcast to hear more from Garry, the self-described “unofficial mayor of Waikiki.”
What the heck is reef-safe sunscreen? Where does all the trash go? Why is it so hot? Join Civil Beat as we tackle your questions about Hawaii's environment. Smart. Irreverent. Never boring. This is not your grandma's science podcast.
