UH Athletic Director Ben Jay to share his vision for the sports program

PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The University of Hawaii's new Athletics Director Ben Jay will be talking about his vision for the UH's sports program at a town hall meeting on Thursday, May 16, 2013. It will take place at Pearl Ridge Elementary School's cafeteria at 7 p.m.

Recently, Jay sparked controversy among UH fans for his decision to change team names. He's also brought attention to the poor state of the athletics facilities through twitter.

"This will be a great opportunity for our constituents to hear how our new UH athletics director is going to improve the program and his vision for the future," said Senate President Donna Mercado Kim, who represents District 14(Kapalama, ‘Alewa, Kalihi Valley, Ft. Shafter, Moanalua Gardens & Valley, portions of Halawa and ‘Aiea).

"I encourage everyone to attend the town hall meeting to learn about the direction of UH Athletics and use this chance to engage in the discussion relating to the department," said Sen. David Ige, who represents District 16 (Pearl City, Momilani, Pearlridge, ‘Aiea, Royal Summit, ‘Aiea Heights, Newtown, Waimalu, Halawa, Pearl Harbor).

The town hall is being hosted by lawmakers representing the Aiea and Pearl City areas: Sen. David Y. Ige, Senate President Donna Mercado Kim, Rep. Aaron Johanson, Rep. K. Mark Takai, Rep. Roy Takumi, Rep. Gregg Takayama and City Councilmembers Breene Harimoto and Carol Fukunaga.
