Governor appoints 3 to state land board

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Governor Neil Abercrombie has appointed three members to the seven-member Board of Land and Natural Resources.

Abercrombie said Friday the appointments will fill seats vacated by two members who resigned and another whose term expired. Attorney Vernon Char is being appointed to the at-large seat. Kumu hula and Kamehameha Schools natural and cultural resources manager Ulalia Woodside is being appointed to the Honolulu seat. Her appointment will fulfill a requirement that a board member have experience with Native Hawaiian cultural practices.

Organic farm owner and former Hawaii County planning director Christopher Yuen is being appointed to an at-large seat. Yuen's appointment fulfills a requirement that a member be experienced in conservation.

The interim appointments are effective immediately but are subject to state Senate confirmation.
