Mom Meets Mayor Mufi
To be perfectly correct Mufi Hannemann was not mayor of Honolulu yet. This photo was taken at the Waipahu Open (Farmers) Market in 2004 when he was still campaigning for the mayoral office.
It was really rather funny because I happened to have my camera and I asked Mr. Hannemann if he wouldn't mind having his photo taken with my mom. He was really nice about it even though I couldn't vote in Hawaii in 2004 since we were not yet residents. And no I didn't vote for Rod Blagojevich in Illinois! Uh oh... I'm going off on a tangent here.
Anyway, it wasn't until I uploaded my photos onto my computer that I truly realized just how tall 6'7" Mr. Hannemann was compared to my 4'10" mom. My mom got quite a kick out of the photo. I wonder if she voted for him.
