Hawaii Governor: Josh Green (D)
Josh Green is a husband, a father, an ER doctor and Hawaii’s lieutenant governor.
More than 20 years ago, he started caring for local families as a doctor in a small clinic on the Big Island.
He ran for office, serving in the state House and state Senate from 2004 to 2018 and making a difference in people’s lives, like providing health care for every child in Hawaii, more resources to treat addiction and insurance coverage for kids with autism.
In 2005, Josh met Jaime Ushiroda, a local girl from Kaneohe, and they were married in 2006.
In 2018, Josh became Hawaii’s lieutenant governor and when he saw the need for real solutions on homelessness, he helped build Kauhale communities and the H4 clinic to provide housing and care for those in need.
When a measles epidemic hit Samoa in 2019, he led a team of doctors and nurses from Hawaii, and within 48 hours they vaccinated 37,000 people and protected Samoa’s children.
Just a few months later COVID hit Hawaii, and as COVID liaison he led the largest health care response in state history, pulling Hawaii together to vaccinate over a million people.
He and his wife have a 15-year-old daughter, Maia, and an 11-year-old son, Sam.
