Lawrence Tseu, who was appointed by former Gov. Linda Lingle to the Stadium Authority, is not resigning.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Neil Abercrombie had said earlier this month that Tseu had informed the administration through a secretary that he would resign. The governor had asked for courtesy resignations from 28 Lingle appointees to five major state boards and commissions.
"He is staying with the board," Kevin Chong Kee, chairman of the Stadium Authority, said Thursday with Tseu's authorization.
With Tseu's decision, Abercrombie has received and accepted a resignation from only one appointee through his request.
The governor declined to accept the resignation of another, and one appointee had resigned before receiving the governor's request.
