Robert "Bobby" Bunda (born April 25, 1947) is a former Democratic member of the Hawaii Senate, representing the 22nd District from 1994 through 2010, when he resigned his position in a bid for Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii.[1] Previously he was a member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from 1983 through 1994.

He is the first Filipino American to attain the presidency of any state legislature in the United States.

He attended Ludwigsburg American High School in Stuttgart, Germany, Leilehua High School, Texas Wesleyan College where he earned his Bachelor's of Science in 1974, and University of Dallas for his graduate studies.


The 2009 Achievement Award for Public Affairs was conferred to Senator Robert Bunda by Filipinas Magazine.[2] The magazine, self-described as "the Magazine for Filipinos Worldwide" distinguished Senator Bunda as among the "brightest lights" of the Filipino community.[3]

Senator Bunda announced on October 13, 2009, that he entered the 2010 race for Lieutenant Governor for the State of Hawaiʻi.[1] Bunda subsequently lost the election to former state legislator and state party chairman Brian Schatz.
