The Ige administration will address the many issues facing our state in a direct and forthright manner. We will collaborate with our federal and county partners and with the Legislature to serve all of the people of Hawaii. We will spend public funds thoughtfully and without waste to avoid raising taxes. We will make state government more efficient, especially in the procurement of goods and services and the hiring of personnel. We will conduct government affairs openly and be visible to the public.
The Ige administration will not only strive to do the right thing, but do it the right way. This administration will be honest, transparent, accountable, and responsive to you. We will serve the public interest and not special interests. We will hold regular news conferences. We will have no hidden agendas.
