Conn. college official got an extra $100,000

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The former president of Connecticut's state university and community college system was paid at least $100,000 more than his salary in 13 months on the job, before resigning earlier this month amid a controversy over $250,000 in unauthorized raises.

The Hartford Courant reported Sunday that Robert Kennedy received $75,000 from a contractual bonus and an un-vouchered expense account, and at least $25,000 in other reimbursements on top of his $340,000 salary. The compensation was allowed under a contract negotiated by the governor's office.

Kennedy is also eligible for another $20,000 in "deferred compensation."

Kennedy and a vice president of the college system resigned after Kennedy acknowledged awarding $250,000 in pay raises to staff without the Board of Regents' permission or knowledge.

Messages were left for Kennedy on Sunday.
