The Hawaiian Republican Occasion chief resigns and shifts focus to recruitment

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The Hawaiian Republican Party leader resigned from office Thursday but said she would remain active in the group.

Signe Godfrey, a former small business owner, joined first vice chairwoman Lynn Finnegan as interim chairwoman.

Godfrey didn’t give a specific reason for her resignation, but said she was shifting her focus to recruiting candidates for next year’s legislative elections.

“I will continue my role as an active Republican official and a great supporter of the candidates who are now being persecuted to run our state. It is important that Hawaii has a two-party system and we must work together in this effort, ”said Godfrey.

She took over the presidency in May of that year, replacing Shirlene Ostrov, who resigned after the party posted a controversial thread of tweets in support of QAnon theorists.

In May, Godfrey was excited about the future of the party, which is said to be picking up momentum with new members.

Meanwhile, party officials said they look forward to the upcoming races and are encouraged by the Republican candidates who stand up.
