SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Last week Janet Napolitano just about tripled her old salary as Homeland Security Secretary now that she’s confirmed to be the next president of the University of California.
While the Board of Regents assured they’re in the business of education, they thought it made good business sense to pay her $575,000 a year. The regents said Napolitano is a remarkable person of character.
In addition, she gets a free house an $8,000 car allowance and $142,000 for relocation expenses.
“Four or five big truckloads of stuff; we could get a much better deal than that,” said Matt Pendergas from Coast Truck Rental, a moving company I asked to see if the state of California was getting its money’s worth in moving costs.
