Abercrombie withdraws names of UH regent nominees

Gov. Neil Abercrombie has withdrawn two of his nominations to the University of Hawaii Board of Regents.

The state Senate Education Committee voted Monday to reject the nominees, making it unlikely that the full Senate would have confirmed the governor's picks.

The committee voted not to confirm Sandra Scarr, a former psychology professor who serves on several Big Island organizations, and Patrick Naughton, a former provost at Hawaii Community College who has a nonprofit that works with dyslexic students.

Scarr and Naughton were nominated to represent the Big Island on the board. Senators, as is customary, gave Abercrombie the option of withdrawing the nominations before they reached the Senate floor for a final vote.
