ABOUT THE GOVERNOR

Josh Green, M.D.

Governor Josh Green is a proud husband, father, and physician. For the past 20 years, Governor Green cared for Big Island families as a doctor. He served in the State House of Representatives and the State Senate from 2004 to 2018. As chair of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee, he passed “Luke’s Law,” which provides care for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as tobacco and e-cigarette regulations, which increased the legal age for purchasing tobacco and e-cigarettes to 21. Passionate about housing solutions, Governor Green helped create “Kauhale” communities to get unsheltered veterans, kūpuna, and others into safe housing options. These efforts are ongoing and will continue to be one of his top priorities as Governor.  Governor Green expanded the role of Lieutenant Governor by spearheading the largest healthcare response in state history during the COVID pandemic. These critical emergency efforts resulted in Hawaiʻi having the nation’s lowest COVID-19 fatality rate.

FestPAC’s Ecumenical Service beautifully embodies the spiritual essence intrinsic to Pacific cultures, providing a heartfelt gathering for communal worship. This sacred event honors and expresses faith through hymn singing, readings, prayers, and reflections, with choirs from various Pacific Island nations enhancing the ambiance with their soulful performances.
 
Mahalo to Reverend Elder Falelua Lafitaga for delivering the opening prayer and to Kahu Kenneth Makuakāne for sharing a special, inspiring message that resonated with all our island nations. As the vast Pacific Ocean connects us, so does our shared love of culture and reverence, weaving a tapestry of unity and resilience across the waves.
