New super PAC backs Green for lieutenant governor

  • Green

HONOLULU — The Hawaii Regional Council of Carpenters is funding a new super political action committee in support of a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.

The super PAC Be Change Now launched a series of television advertisements during the weekend in support of state Sen. Josh Green in his run for lieutenant governor. Green currently occupies the District 3 Senate seat, representing Kona and Ka‘u on the Big Island.

The carpenters council, which endorsed Green last month, is the only group connected to Be Change Now.

The super PAC says Green is the only candidate it is supporting at this time, but it could choose to back other candidates later.

Be Change Now filed with the state Campaign Spending Commission in late April. It is not required to file its first spending report until August.
