Message from Governor Linda Lingle and Lt. Governor James R. “Duke” Aiona, Jr. on the occasion of THANKSGIVING
As the holiday season approaches, we would like to offer our best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving. We are grateful that our state’s rich mix of cultures and traditions cultivates a unique harmony, reflecting the countless blessings we enjoy.
For the past eight years, the Lingle-Aiona Administration has been honored to serve the people of Hawai‘i. During our time, we remained firm in our commitment to improving the quality of life for Hawai‘i residents. We are pleased to have been able to initiate major upgrades to our airports, harbors, public schools, highways, state parks, hospitals and other public facilities.
In Hawai‘i, the stunning beauty of our islands, a diverse culture which welcomes new friends and old, and the ideals of ‘ohana, which tie us to this special place we call home, are among the many blessings for which we can be thankful. Let us also take a moment to express our appreciation for our men and women in uniform, serving both at home and abroad, who have volunteered to sacrifice time with their families to serve our nation and provide a warm blanket of safety for all of us.
We are truly grateful to the people of Hawai‘i for allowing us to serve as your Governor and Lt. Governor for eight years. It is the tremendous people who make our state an exceptional place to live, work and raise a family. Best wishes and happy holidays.
Governor, State of Hawai‘i
James R. “Duke” Aiona, Jr.
Lieutenant Governor, State of Hawai‘i

I am thankful to live in our beautiful state of Hawai'i. Our families, our state and our nation are what drives so many of us to participate in the political process and get involved with politics. Let us not lose sight of why we do what we do.
Please enjoy your holiday and enjoy the many blessings you have. More importantly, reach out to those you appreciate most and let them know how important they are to you. We truly are lucky to live in Hawaii.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
