I am deeply humbled and honored to announce my candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii.
Every day, families across our state tell me we need fresh leadership, not politics as usual.
Hawaii families want government to work for them, to get results that make their lives better, and to reflect our shared values.
That’s what I believe government should do, and that’s why I’m running to serve as Lieutenant Governor.
As a local doctor, I’ve spent my life caring for Hawaii families.
I’ve had the privilege of taking care of our moms and dads, our keiki and kupuna: delivering babies, stitching up wounds, or just being there to hold the hand of a sick child or an elderly grandmother in the hospital.
Serving in the State Senate, I’ve worked to pass legislation that strengthens and supports Hawaii families, including universal healthcare for our keiki, guaranteed insurance coverage for Hawaii’s autistic children, stronger protections for victims of sexual assault, and new programs to reduce maternal mortality.
And as a husband and father of two young children, I have the same hopes and concerns as every parent in Hawaii.
My wife Jaime and I want our kids, Maia and Sam, to grow up in a Hawaii where no family has to live in poverty, or has to choose between buying food or buying medicine for a sick child.
I am deeply grateful for your support, and I believe that working together we can accomplish real results for our communities.
Together we can move Hawaii forward as one Ohana, and build a better future for all our families.
