Resolution of Investigation 2016-2

Senator’s Alleged Failure to Report Interest in Real Property On Annual Disclosure of Financial Interests

From Hawaii Ethics Commission, May 24, 2016

The Hawaii State Ethics Commission (“Commission”) has resolved an investigation regarding Senator Joshua Green’s alleged failure to report his interest in a condominium unit on his annual disclosure of financial interests as required by Hawaii Revised Statutes (“HRS”) section 84-17, the financial disclosure law. Senator Green agreed, as part of the resolution of this matter, to pay an administrative penalty to the State of Hawaii in the amount of $300 and to the Commission’s issuance of this public document.

The Commission has not issued a charge against Senator Green in connection with this matter and the resolution of the investigation does not constitute an admission by Senator Green, or a determination by the Commission, that Senator Green violated the State Ethics Code. As discussed herein, the Commission believes it is fair and reasonable to resolve this matter without further administrative action.

I. Facts

The Commission understands the facts concerning Senator Green’s situation to be as follows.

Senator Green has served as a member of the State Senate since 2008. He represents Senate District 3, the Kona and Kau areas of Hawaii island. In 2005, Senator Green acquired an ownership interest in an Executive Centre condominium unit (“Executive Centre property”) in Honolulu, where he resided from 2005 to 2010 when working at the legislature. In 2010, he moved to another property. Senator Green still owns the Executive Centre property but no longer lives there. In 2013 to 2014, he rented the property and received rental income during this period.
