Letter: It’s proof positive to scrap higher ed boardThank you, North Dakota Board of Higher Education members. Thank you for wasting almost $1 million of our taxpayer money to buy out someone you shouldn’t have hired in the first place.
During my 27 years with the telephone company, my total earnings were about the same as you authorized to this guy for two years of NOT working. You even saw fit to give him a pay increase in 2014 for NOT working.
I am not blaming Chancellor Hamid Shirvani; he is merely taking advantage of someone else’s goof – yours. I’ve read that there has been talk of doing away with the board, and this should be proof positive that would be the proper move.
