Cayetano is running against former city Managing Director Kirk Caldwell.
The Save Oahu Farmlands Alliance announced its endorsement Tuesday in a news release.
From the release:
Ben Cayetano has vigorously stated, before the Land Use Commission and many times elsewhere, that the paramount authority for preserving agricultural land is the injunction of the Hawai`i State Constitution “to conserve and protect agricultural lands, promote diversified agriculture, increase agricultural self-sufficiency and assure the availability of agriculturally suitable lands” (Article XI).
… Mr. Cayetano has a strong and lengthy record of service to the environmental preservation and management of our island.
On its website, the Alliance describes itself as a “pro-farm, pro-environment, and Hawaiian organizations and individuals, joined together for projects to save Oʻahu farmlands.”
