SENATE PRESIDENT STATEMENT ON LT. GOV. RESIGNATION

HONOLULU, Hawai‘i - Senate President Ronald D. Kouchi released the following statement on receiving the news that Shan Tsutsui will resign as Lieutenant Governor effective January 31, 2018:

"While it was known that Lieutenant Governor Shan Tsutsui would not be seeking re-election to his current office, being informed that the effective date of his resignation is in two days leaves me with mixed emotions.

While I am personally happy that Shan is able to spend more time with his family, who has sacrificed in order for Shan to serve Maui, the State Senate, and the State of Hawai‘i, I am professionally saddened because Shan's resignation leaves a gaping hole in our current political fabric.

With regard to the soon to be vacant Office of the Lieutenant Governor, I am not interested in becoming the next Lieutenant Governor of the State of Hawai‘i.”
