David Ige becomes state's 8th governor

HONOLULU —On a windy morning in front of hundreds of students, state lawmakers and five former state governors, Sen. David Ige became Gov. Ige.

He gave a speech that focused on family as he became Hawaii's eighth governor.

“I am a son of immigrants like most of us here in Hawaii,” Ige said. “We are forever marked by that immigrant experience, by that voyaging.”

Ige takes over the state’s top job with unemployment at its lowest level since 2008, but he still says there is a lot of work to be done.

“In the last several years, we have had to deal with some of the most divisive issues we've faced as a community, including GMOs, same-sex marriage and others that go to the heart of what many of us believe,” said Ige. “But that's the thing, you see. As important as those issues are, they really don't define us.”

Hawaii's new governor served in the state Legislature for nearly 30 years before the inauguration Monday.
