Did you know that the State of Hawaiʻi has eSigned more than 420,000 documents since 2015? By reducing the amount of paper used, the state has cut costs and positively impacted the environment. Just as importantly, electronic documents help the government communicate more effectively across the islands and deliver public services more efficiently.

I am proud to announce the Office of Enterprise Technology Services, State of Hawaii has been selected to advance to the final round of the 2018 SuperNova Awards for the eSign initiative (esign.hawaii.gov/).

The polls are now open until 9/28. Please share and cast your vote here: www.constellationr.com/node/15785/vote/application/view/489

More than 80,000 American soldiers and military personnel remain missing or unaccounted for from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Cold War. The State of Hawai’i was home to seven military servicemen who were either prisoners of war (POW), missing in action (MIA), or whose bodies were not recovered. Hawaiʻi will always honor and remember these men of courage: USAF 1st Lt. David Anthony Lum; USMC 1st Lt. John Robert Peacock II; USAF SSG Klaus Jurgen Bingham; USAF SGT Leonard Masayon Tadios; USAF SrA Ronald Kazuo Miyazaki; USAF CPL Richard D. Martin; and John R. Tavares.

I am honored to proclaim today as “POW * MIA Recognition Day” in Hawaiʻi. We will never forget the contributions and sacrifices our nation's prisoners of war, those missing in action, and their families have made to our state and nation. #POWMIARecognitionDay
