Governor Linda Lingle selected five individuals to replace University of Hawai`i regents who have been serving as holdovers since terms expired in June.

The list includes UH Professor, Dr. Ramon De la Pena; Servco Pacific CEO, Mark Fukunaga; former UH Travel Industry Dean, Dr. Chuck Gee; Tradewind Capital Group VP, Eric Martinson; and student regent Grant Teichman. Appointments are subject to senate confirmation later this month.

Since the Hawai`i Supreme Court’s December 4, 2008 order that directed the Governor to select replacements for the six regents held over after their terms expired on June 30, 2008 from the list of qualified candidates presented to her by the Regents Candidate Advisory Council, two of the five candidates for the second at-large regent withdrew their names from consideration.

The Governor has filed a motion to stay the effect of the Dec. 4 order and a motion requesting additional time to secure replacement nominations from the Council from which to select a replacement for the at-large regent. The Supreme Court has granted the motion for stay in order to consider the motion for additional time and any opposition that might be filed.
