Hawaii Tourism Authority Members to be Replaced

15th Apr 2002

Gov. Ben Cayetano is replacing six of 13 members on the Hawaii Tourism
Authority when their terms end June 30 with a group that he hopes will
more broadly represent the state`s business community in marketing the
islands to tourists, according to his spokeswoman.
Cayetano has nominated Sharon Weiner, a group vice president with DFS; Nadine
Nakamura, a Kauai County planning consultant; Mike McCartney, a former
state senator and president of Hawaii Public Television; Stephen Yamashiro, a former Big Island mayor and attorney; Lawrence Johnson, the former CEO of Pacific Century Corp.; and Alice Guild, the former executive director of Iolani Palace. The nominees must be confirmed by the state Senate this month.
