Governor David Ige’s statement on the passing of Sen. Gilbert Kahele

Posted on Jan 26, 2016 in Latest Department News, Newsroom, Office of the Governor Press Releases

It is with much sadness that I learned of Senator Kahele’s passing. He was a dedicated public servant who spent the last few years working for the good of his beloved community at the Hawai‘i State Legislature. He was a respected and influential leader both in the legislature and in his hometown community of Hilo. My deepest condolences to his ‘ohana, friends and supporters during this difficult time.

~ Governor David Ige
