            Message by The Honorable John Ehsa
                   Governor, State of Pohnpei


It is indeed my distinct pleasure to extend a very warm Kaselehlie and Welcome to each and every one of you to the Pohnpei State Government website. The website is designed primarily to inform and to share with the people of Pohnpei and the general public true and realistic information concerning what the government (executive branch) is doing, and at the same time to seek public input and guidance on how best we can improve delivery of public services to those that we serve.

We came into office in January 2008 with high hopes for positive change. As Governor, I pledged to uphold and faithfully carry out my mandates as enshrined in the Constitution and laws of the Pohnpei State and the Federated States of Micronesia. I realized that our State faces many challenges ahead and affirmed strong commitment to promote peace, unity, transparency and accountability.

Our objective is to provide a better life for our people. A life where those who seek work can find meaningful and gainful employment, live in a healthy environment with food that is abundant and safe, roads, water and power that are sound, fuel that is affordable and live long healthy prosperous lives. Our State continues to face a formidable array of challenges. Information regarding these challenges will be shared with you via the website as they are unfolded, dealt with and disposed of.

I appreciate the support and look forward to hearing from you all on best practices to improve public services going forward.  Kalahngan and Kaselehlie.

Ni wahu,

John Ehsa
