Bert Kobayashi Power Play: ‘I Have No Respect for Tom Apple’

SA: Attorney Bert T. Kobayashi Jr., a longtime key supporter of the University of Hawaii athletic department, has resigned from the ‘Ahahui Koa Anuenue booster club, citing a lack of respect for embattled Manoa chancellor Tom Apple.

In a letter to members of the Koa Anuenue board of directors dated Thursday and obtained by the Star-Advertiser, Kobayashi wrote, “... I strongly believe in AKA and its mission; however, I find myself in a situation where if I stay with AKA that I would have to work with chancellor Tom Apple, for whom I have no respect.”

A faction has lost confidence in the university’s current leader and believes she should be fired

SA: Regents Chairman Eric Martinson, who it is believed asked for the special meeting, did not return phone calls asking for more information about the session.

Sources said there is a faction of regents who have lost confidence in Greenwood and believe she should be fired.

It is not clear whether there are enough votes on the 15-member board to do so.

Earlier this week, University of Hawaii spokeswoman Lynne Waters said Greenwood was ill with a 101-degree fever. On Friday, Waters gave the Star-Advertiser a statement related to this week's Senate hearings from John Morton, UH vice president for community colleges but whom the statement referred to as "acting president."

Other UH officials said Greenwood left the state this week and is in California.

Greenwood, under contract through 2015, receives a salary of $427,512 plus a $5,000-a-month housing allowance and other benefits. Under her agreement, she may be bought out without cause for one year's salary.
