Ref: Jack M. Schmidt Jr. ltr to wit, "
Mr. Hodge can only be faulted for making the assumption that he was dealing with honorable people."
Be careful how you use that word honorable, especially when speaking about politicans, because we know, with a few exceptions, that word does not describe historically, politicans in Hawaii. Shame die hard democrats keep returning them to office.

Ms. Stregar makes a valid point..how does appointing a high-salary official for a major university benefit the community during a recession?
The answer is simple... it does not! Nor will the students and programs benefit academically.

neither the Democrats, nor the horrible hawaii republicans are effective. We need new faces and parties.

Spoken like a true, dyed in the wool democrat. What is this "we" mean? Does it mean you've moved to Hawaii?

Alice, you do realize that the "horrible" Hawaiian Republicans do not have a majority in the Legislature don't you? Matter of fact, there are so few that they aren't even invited to participate in the democratic process. So, any and all bills, laws and resolutions passed are done by the Hawaiian Democrats. Are you a political racist? Bad mouthing the minority. Where's your political correctness? Tsk, Tsk. I did notice that you labeled the Republicans but not the Democrats. Your bias is apparent and your opinion is flawed. Aloha, wherever you reside.

Here's an idea-borrow from ERS to fund the budget deficit. If the State subsequently can't afford contributions to the pension plan, have ERS issue IOU's, ala California. Wonder what establishments would honor the IOU's? To the employees, might as well borrow from your own pension, as that's what you're doing in the long run.

In Response to Ms. Rosita Sipirok-Siregar.
You get what you pay for and Dr. Greenwood's skills and experience is heads and shoulders beyond what little the former President brought to the table.
