Lingle Nominates Former Student Regent Michael Dahilig as UH Regent At-Large

Governor Linda Lingle today announced she has nominated Michael A. Dahilig to fill the remaining University of Hawai‘i Board of Regents at-large seat. His name will be submitted to the Hawai‘i State Senate for its advice and consent.

I find this strange because he just submitted a resignation letter from his student regent position 6 weeks ago:

I blogged earlier that this was the Student Regent that supported UARC despite the student wishes:

…He said personally for him it came down to a question of academic freedom. He said the three-year moratorium on classified research was “a fair compromise.” Ultimately, he said, “the pros outweighed the cons,” so he voted for the military research program…

…He said that while he is “not 100% proud” of the vote, that he felt he “tipped his hat” to the overwhelming student opposition by voting yes with reservations…
