Hey Kris, I guess you missed my sarcasm!Kimo Wrote: in respect to above posting
You are correct, lets just keep the local kids picking pineapples and working in hotels while the asians and haoles get a good education...if Hawaii is such a backwater, get the hell out! WE DON"T NEED YOU!!
...It's people like you the keeps racist and prejudice alive in this world. Your response is not at all true. If you choose a path towards picking pineapples, that's solely your discretion, who's stopping you from getting an education? Your destiny and career path is what you and only you make of it. Don't place blames on other especially in regards to racial remarks!
... In regards to UCERA, as a past employee I'd have to agree with most of you, money is definitely better spent somewhere else. That place is corrupt!

You are more right on then you know, but.... the true problem is the people that they have had running this business for years, not the new people who came in. They don't tell you that! The consultants discovered this mess & were booted out!

It's because they need & want change to run an appropriate business but when you get someone here who can better something the red tape & BS shuts them down. I am an employee at UCERA & that article was a fluff BS peice. If the people of Hawaii only knew the real story I think you would think before you speak!!
Both Kent & Jerry did great things for UCERA & someone else is getting recognition for uncovering & fixing the problems. As far as the Board members being surprised, they know & have know what is going on here for a very long time!

True, this must have beena mess for years. Slush funds usually are.

Kent & Jerry did do great things for UCERA. They came in and Kent refused to give in to the BS, hats off to him. It was very clear that they did not know what they were walking into and only the few were honest with them and the rest thought they could make the new COO their new puppet and continue to run the show but Kent put a stop to it.
The real issue is that there are still too many chiefs and not enough indians-literally. The overall morale is the lowest it has ever been and if they don't take the time to stop and pay attention to who they do have they will one day show up to an empty office. The staff at UCERA work very hard to do their very best and should be recognized and respected as this is their bread and butter.
UCERA will pull through and the unity is happening but things like this do not create a positive environment for their employees. They are trying their best and are all working working towards the greater cause to support the University and the reputation of the only Medical School Hawaii has.
Focus on the future and stop dwelling on the past.
