Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

Politicians + Universities = The Good Life

Poor Frank Brogan, former Florida Lt. Governor.  He gave up his 10% raise he was due in March of this year. How noble –  that is, until you learn he only delayed the raise until March of 2010.  Nevermind that he makes $328,187 as the President of Florida Atlantic University.  Nevermind that 130 FAU jobs were cut this past year and more layoffs are inevitable.  And nevermind that FAU professors have not seen an across-the-board raise since 2006, and are at impasse in salary negotiations.

Ahhh….politicians employed by universities.  Now that’s the good life.
