Business leaders nominated for UH Board of Regents

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:40 p.m. HST, Mar 19, 2013

Gov. Neil Abercrombie nominated two retired business leaders and the former director of the Maui High Performance Computing Center to the University of Hawaii Board of Regents, the governor’s office announced today.

If confirmed by the Senate, Eugene Bal III, Barry T. Mizuno and Randolph A. Moore will fill the Maui, Hawaii County and at-large seats on the 15-member board.

Bal is a retired U.S. Navy Captain who also served as executive director of the Maui High Performance Computing Center for 16 years.

Mizuno is being nominated for another term on the board, representing Hawaii island. He retired as manager of Puna Geothermal Ventures and a private energy consulting firm and is a former finance director and managing director for Hawaii County government.

Moore retired from Kaneohe Ranch and then served as public school teacher and assistant superintendent at the Department of Education. He also earned two master’s degrees and a Ph.D from UH Manoa.

Moore will fill the remaining term of former regent Michael Dahilig and will begin a new term in July, if he is confirmed by the Senate.

The nominees were selected from a list provided by the Regents Candidate Advisory Council.

Regents terms are for five years. They are not paid for their service on the board, which oversees the operations and leadership of the 10-campus University of Hawaii system.

The First person the governor needs to get rid of is Martinson, no balls whatsoever, in Greenwood's back pocket . Terrible job in Wondergate, part of the non transparency and endless spending on attorney fees on his watch , since he's the so called chairman. Please go back to Queen's Medical Center and stay at your job there.

Moore served in very high executive positions at Kaneohe Ranch and Castle & Cooke. But he gave up the big bucks and went back to school to get his teaching certificate so that he could become a teacher at Central Intermediate. He wanted to give back to the community by being a teacher. But with his skill set was quickly sucked up into administrative roles, which he accepted because he realized there were some fundamental obstacles that teachers were facing. He moved up the ranks to try and help change the system. He didn't have to become a teacher and take one tenth of what he was earning as a business executive. But he did it out of a sense of obligation. Now he's retired and probably could just cruise for the rest of his life. Why take on the stress and criticism that will come with being a regent? I say if he's willing to do it, then sign him up before he changes his mind.
