MnSCU Chancellor’s ‘fringe’ benefits a joke on taxpayers (06/30/2014)
From: James Puz

After reading a recent article about the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and its chancellor’s new contract, it can’t be said that the MnSCU doesn’t have a sense of humor... at the expense of Minnesota taxpayers.

Chancellor Steven J. Rosenstone will receive $101,160 in annual fringe benefits. That’s pretty expensive fringe. Looking at how those “fringe” benefits break down, you can’t help but fall down in tearful laughter.

A $43,200 housing allowance? A mere $3,960 for communication? A drop in the bucket $15,000 for transportation (travel expenses are separate at a pitifully meager $7,200)? The paltry sum of $24,000 as a “supplemental” allowance? How much more can Dr. Rosenstone develop professionally at the ridiculously low price of $7,800? It looks like the only thing Chancellor Rosenstone has to pay for is his food. And I’ll bet if he eats on campus, he’ll get a meal ticket, compliments of MnSCU.

Also keep in mind, as part of that gold-plated contract, those “fringe” benefits will increase by more than $43,000 each successive year.

As I said, MnSCU has a sense of humor. It told a joke and we’re the butt of that joke.
