Peter Carlisle

Mayor

City and County of Honolulu

Peter B. Carlisle is serving in his first term as Mayor of the City and County of Honolulu, the 10th largest municipality in the United States with a population of 953,207. Carlisle is the Chief Executive of approximately 10,000 employees with a $2.5 billion combined annual operating and capital improvement budget. He was sworn in on October 11, 2010 to serve as Honolulu's 13th mayor. Carlisle ran on a platform of political independence and fiscal responsibility. The administration’s first proposed Capital Improvement Program budget to the City Council was the leanest in seven years.

From 1997 to 2010, Carlisle served as Honolulu’s elected Prosecuting Attorney. In 2008, he was elected to an unprecedented 4th term as Prosecutor. From 1990 to 1996, Carlisle was a partner at the law firm of Shim, Tam, Kirimitsu, Kitamura and Chang. Prior to that, he served as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for the City and County of Honolulu for 11 years.

As Prosecuting Attorney, Carlisle has personally handled the trials of several high profile cases including the trial of Byran Uyesugi, known nationally as the Xerox massacre, the deadliest mass murder in the history of the State of Hawaii. Uyesugi was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Carlisle's administration as prosecutor was distinguished for its political independence and advocacy for common sense in the justice system, where among other things, he along with the law enforcement community, successfully pushed for legislation to implement Information Charging which created a more efficient way to initiate felony cases.

Born and raised in New Jersey, after graduating in 1977 from UCLA Law School, Carlisle made his home in Honolulu, Hawaii where he met his wife Judy and raised his daughter Aspen and son Benson.
