Former Hawaii board chairman Martinson resigns

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii says former Board of Regents Chairman Eric Martinson has resigned.

The university said through its official Twitter account Wednesday that Martinson resigned for personal reasons. Martinson's term on the board wasn't due to expire until next year.

The school says his service is greatly appreciated and he will be greatly missed.

Martinson was board chairman for one year from May 2012.

He was at the helm when lawmakers heavily criticized the board for its oversight of the university's response to the athletic department's botched attempt to hold a Stevie Wonder concert.

The department lost $200,000 when it sent a deposit to someone falsely claiming to represent the singer. The university then spent even more money dealing with personnel issues and investigations into what went wrong.
