Final Thought… does the name James Kealoha ring a bell? Kealoha was Hawaiʻi’s first Lieutenant Governor under statehood, a Republican who served under Gov. William F. Quinn from 1959-1962.
Since Kealoha, 13 people have sat in that office: 12 Democrats and one other Republican, Duke Aiona, who served under Gov. Linda Lingle, Hawaiʻi’s first and only woman Governor.
The 12 other Lieutenant Governors were William Richardson (1962-1966), Thomas Gill (1966-1970), George Ariyoshi (1970-1974), Nelson Doi (1974-1978), Jean King (1978-1982), John Waiheʻe (1982-1986), Ben Cayetano (1986-1994) Mazie Hirono (1994-2002), Brian Schatz (2010-2012), Shan Tsutsui (2012-2018), Doug Chin (February-December 2018) and Josh Green (2018-Present.)
Three of those Lieutenant Governors – Ariyoshi, Waiheʻe and Cayetano – went on to become Governor of Hawaiʻi. Green and Aiona are running for Governor in 2022.
The Lieutenant Governor post is always a hot and crowded ticket, and this year’s no different. One of the most intriguing stories this political season is the Democratic Primary for Lieutenant Governor, with four notable candidates hoping to punch their ticket to the general election. Thursday’s INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI is going to be a dandy. Could we be seeing a future Governor of Hawaiʻi in action?
