Shan S. Tsutsui of Maui was officially sworn-in as lieutenant governor of Hawai’i during an 11 a.m. ceremony in the Governor’s Executive Office on O’ahu.

Chief Justice Mark E. Recktenwald administered the formal swearing-in and oath of office.

Tsutsui previously served as the 12th Senate president of the state. He was both the first Senate president from Maui as well as the youngest.

Tsutsui was elected to the Senate in 2002 to represent Hawaii’s 4th Senatorial District. His previous leadership positions included the vice chair of Ways and Means and majority caucus leader.

He fills the vacancy created by the selection of former Lt. Gov. Brian Schatz to fill the US Senate post of the late US Senator Daniel K. Inouye.

Today is the final day for applications to be considered for candidates seeking appointment to fill Tsutsui’s vacant District 5 Senate seat to represent the Central Maui communities of Wailuku, Waihee and Kahului.
