He is a member of the Senate Committees on Commerce and Consumer Protection (CPN); Energy, Economic Development, and Tourism (EET); Public Safety, Intergovernmental and Military Affairs (PSM); and Water and Land (WTL).
Riviere serves Senate District 23, a large, rural district made up of diverse coastal communities, agricultural and conservation lands, numerous bays and spectacular beaches. His priorities for the district are to preserve and enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors by supporting business activity appropriate for the area, expanding diversified agriculture and food production, improving the health of watersheds and near shore waters, maintaining the regional highway and parks, and ensuring responsible planning and development.
Gil Riviere is grounded with the loving support of his wife, Liz, and their two teenage children. Residing in Waialua, the family is regularly seen participating in community activities at local ballparks, beaches, libraries, and businesses throughout the district.
Riviere served in the Hawaii House of Representatives from 2010-2012. Previously, he led a community group to victory in a landmark development case, revitalized the collapsing Waialua Little League and advocated beach access to prime surfing spots for recreational surfers.
