Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii
Josh Green is a local doctor who has spent his life caring for Hawaii families. After completing his medical training and medical mission work in Africa, Josh joined the National Health Corps and started work as a family physician and ER doctor in rural hospitals and clinics on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Josh was endorsed by DFA as one of the initial Dean Dozen in 2004 and from 2004 to 2008 , he served in the Hawaii State House of Representatives, and since then in the State Senate, chairing the Health and Human services committees for the past several years.
Josh has committed his life‘s work to providing care for those who need it when in crisis and to passing laws that improve the lives of the people in my state such as universal health coverage for children, autism coverage, and a mandate for 100% renewable energy by 2035.
Today, Josh continues to work as an Emergency Room doctor on weekends, caring for local families as he has for over 17 years. The hopes, challenges, and values of the families he cares for every day inspire Josh to do more to make life better for the people of Hawaii. The people of Hawaii need someone to fight for them and as a physician/legislator, Josh has a unique perspective to do exactly that, with an informed, grounded perspective.
Josh will prioritize the policies that Hawaiians deserve like a living wage, debt free college, affordable housing, universal healthcare, and a clean environment. As Lieutenant Governor, Josh will fight for these issues and ensure that Hawaii remains a standard for democracy and equality.
