Robert Kennedy, the higher education chief who resigned Oct. 12 amid an uproar over $250,000 in unauthorized raises given to his subordinates, received at least $100,000 more than his widely reported $340,000 annual salary in 13 months on the job — including $75,000 from a contractual bonus and an unvouchered expense account.
What’s more, the now-departed appointee of Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is still eligible for an additional $20,000 in “deferred compensation” — even after he’s gone.
And although there was criticism over Kennedy’s 8½-week absence from Connecticut during the summer, he’s still expected to be paid more than $4,000 for 26.67 hours of “accrued vacation.”
Hey, it was all for the good of the children, and how can you put a price tag on that?
