Abercrombie asks Aloha Stadium Authority members to resign

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Gov. Neil Abercrombie has asked, not ordered, members of the Aloha Stadium Authority to step aside.

The 90-member authority oversees stadium operations, but the governor wants them gone.

Hawaii News Now's media partner, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, reported that some members of the Stadium Authority were stunned when they received the letter from Abercrombie asking them to resign.

The governor would not speak with Hawaii News Now on Friday, but his spokeswoman Donalyn Dela Cruz said in an email that the resignation request is to make a "fresh start."
