“With her 10 years of experience as chair of the House Finance Committee, Sylvia Luke knows how to get things done. That is the kind of leader we need for our state,” said Christian Fern, UHPA’s executive director.

“So often, there has been dissension between the governor and legislature, and this prevented important initiatives from moving forward. We believe this can end with Sylvia serving as the bridge between the Governor’s office and the legislature. For once, we can expect there to be more collaboration and a more productive relationship,” Fern continued.

“From education to first responders to health care and everywhere in between, Sylvia Luke has always understood the critical role that we government employees serve. When the pandemic hit, she was there – not only fighting to fund essential services and keep our state afloat, but ensuring our schools were functional and even volunteering side by side with our members to
take calls in the unemployment center.


Sylvia Luke is the epitome of servant leadership and
what our state desperately needs,” said HGEA State Political Action Committee Chair Justin Lam. “We need leaders who listen and understand, then take action themselves, without worrying about taking credit.”
