Kim calls for re-opening of UH president search

By 67AM KPUA News

State Senate President Donna Mercado Kim is calling on the University of Hawaii Board of Regents to re-open its search for a president, and has set up an online petition to try to pressure regents to keep searching after three finalists dropped out, leaving just two finalists for UH's top job.

Kims action follows this weeks revelation that the regents failed to consider Columbia University dean Jeanette Takamura -- a Hawaii raised UH graduate, who was nominated by former Governor Ben Cayetano.

Kim said the regents also changed the rules and allowed incumbent UH President David Lassner to apply for the permanent job. He's now one of two finalists, along with retired General Frank Wiercinski, the former commander of the Army in the Pacific.
