UC doesn’t get it on salaries

By
From page A6 | July 30, 2013 |

Reading about the appointment of interim UC Davis Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Adela de la Torre to the position permanently in the July 26 edition of The Davis Enterprise galvanizes my feeling that UC still doesn’t get it when it comes to executive salaries.

Her $235,998 “base salary” is a 12.4 percent increase over the base salary her predecessor, Fred Wood, was receiving when he left for the University of Minnesota at Crookston a little over a year ago. I realize that de la Torre is not getting a raise going from interim to permanent vice chancellor, but why the 12.4 percent increase over Wood’s salary in the first place?

Another similar example is the compensation package of new UC President Janet Napolitano. To make a symbolic gesture, she asked to be paid a base salary 3.57 percent less than that of outgoing President Mark Yudof, ($570,000 for Napolitano as compared to $591,100 for Yudof). However, Napolitano will receive $142,000 for moving expenses!

Upon the announcement of this moving expense package it has been documented by Breitbart News on July 23 that moving from the Washington, D.C., area to the San Francisco Bay Area will cost her $40,000 to $50,000. Hence, Napolitano will put about $100,000 in the bank from this moving expense amount.

It is simple math to figure out that Napolitano can use this extra $100,000 to “pay back” her symbolic salary reduction over a 4.74-year period. By then I am sure she will have received a raise or two and will be making more than Yudof was.

Where do I sign up for a similar salary reduction?!
