Buried in the Express-News article “UT System approves salary incentives” was a startling bit of news about our own Chancellor, Dr. Bruce Leslie:

Alamo Colleges trustees this week approved negotiating a possible jump in pay for Chancellor Bruce Leslie to annual compensation of $373,000 — almost a 12 percent boost of nearly $40,000. The negotiations would include extending his contract through Aug. 31, 2015.

That’s quite a healthy jump in pay considering the Board just voted to raise student tuition, are considering raising taxes, and have let positions go unfilled at the colleges. But these are the terms of Dr. Leslie’s contract. If the Board votes to renew, then the raise comes with the contract automatically.

What do you think?
