Jill Tokuda

As a 4th generation Windward Oahu resident and a graduate of Kaneohe public schools, I have made it my goal to help preserve and improve the community that has given me so much. But my job isn’t done. As my husband and I raise our two sons, I pledge my ongoing commitment to the continuing success of our community: both preserving the good and working hard to secure a brighter future for us all.
I have devoted the past four years in the Hawaii State Senate to working with stakeholders and focusing on solutions to many of the concerns facing our Hawaii communities, including:

  • Bringing home over $93.9 million in Capital Improvement Project and Repair and Maintenance funds for our schools, roadways, facilities and natural resource protection;
  • Authoring and passing legislation to fund a resolution to Furlough Fridays;
  • Fulfilling a 30 year constitutional mandate to protect our valued agricultural lands.

While we have accomplished many things, there is still important work to be done. Join me as we work together to get the job done and secure the future we all want for Hawaii.


Committed to our Keiki

As a mother and a lifelong community advocate, Jill has worked hard to make sure our keiki are cared for. From making sure resources get to the classroom, to fighting for funds to continue important programs like Families for R.E.A.L. and Keiki Care, to volunteering countless hours each month to help schools and community organizations, Senator Tokuda has always made our children and families a top priority.

Jill worked hard with members of the Windward Community College (WCC) ohana and her fellow windward legislators to bring home over $41 million to build a new Library Learning Commons that will greatly benefit both WCC students and the greater Windward community.

Experience Matters

As a former small business owner focused on helping schools and community groups raise funds through recycling, a non-profit executive with organizations like the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii and an advisor to Lt. Governor Mazie Hirono, Jill has the breadth of experience in both the public and private sector to get the job done. Read More…
