UPDATED 7/1/11 10:30 a.m.

All 28 appointees asked by Gov. Neil Abercrombie to resign were unanimously approved by the Democratically-controlled Hawaii Senate.

The appointees of former Gov. Linda Lingle received high praise from Democrats such as former Gov. George Ariyoshi and Senate Judiciary Chairman Clayton Hee and distinguished business leaders like Tim Johns and Robbie Alm.

Civil Beat examined the confirmation records of all 28 appointees, many of whom have said they’re going to resist the governor.

Aryioshi wrote to the Senate to endorse Stadium Authority nominee Lawrence Tseu:

“His business acumen is evident in the many successful entrepreneurial enterprises that he has nurtured, and I believe the Stadium Authority will find his hands-on business experience and insight extremely valuable… I have spent most of my career in government and public service, and I believe that Dr. Tseu has the experience, skill, temperament and qualities that would enable him to contribute significantly to the Stadium Authority.”

Johns wrote of Stadium Authority nominee Kathryn Inouye:

“While on the Board of Land and Natural Resources, Ms. Inouye always approached issues with an open mind, and she always did the research necessary to truly understand the issue at hand. Her insight and analytical abilities contributed greatly to the Board’s decision-making.”

All 37 members of the five boards and commissions targeted by Abercrombie are below.
