Panos Prevedouros 

Prevedouros was born on October 2, 1961 in Patras, Greece. He attended high school in Greece. In 1985, he received his bachelor of science from a land surveying five-year program at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

"In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe
and enough shadows to blind those who don't."

After moving to the U.S., he graduated from Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering with his doctorate degree in civil engineering. He has been a professor at the University of Hawaii Civil Engineering Department since 1990, and has twice failed in bids for the Honolulu mayor's office.

"And I coulda been home in 20 minutes."
A vocal critic of the $5.26 billion Honolulu rail project, (estimates now in $8 billions) Prevedouros has created a list of alternative traffic solutions. He joined the Republican Party on April 15, 2010. He may have won had he been a Democrat.

Prevedouros was the only anti-rail candidate who ran in the 2010 mayoral election to finish the last half of Mufi Hannemann’s four-year term. But the victor in the special election for mayor was former Honolulu prosecutor Peter Carlisle, who took home 38.7 percent of the vote, and had the backing of the Rail Party. He beat acting mayor Kirk Caldwell, who had 34.6 percent of votes.

In the Ewa Plain, nestled up into the mountains. Voted down by
the Rail Party. 9000 less cars on the freeway to town and back. 9000 less cars in downtown traffic. Ho, Ho. The Rail Party
could surely "LIE" through that one.

Prevedouros drew 18.9 percent of votes. City Councilman Rod Tam earned 1.4 percent of votes. Prevedouros spent $107,028 on his campaign, or an average of just $2.92 per vote for his 36,627 votes, compared with Carlisle's average of $5.71 per vote for his 75,276 votes. It's the money, Sonny.

Pub's Side Note: Every bus driver knows more about Oahu Public Transportation than the Czar of the Rail Disaster. But he gets paid more than the Mayor and the Governor combined. Now that was a con job that will never, ever be beaten.
