New Jersey to review pay packages of community college presidents after misspending allegations led to two presidential ousters

The Bergen Record
State Comptroller Matthew Boxer will review the compensation packages of community college presidents throughout the state after allegations of misspending that led to the resignations of the leaders of two of the schools.

The Comptroller's Office, which serves as a watchdog, began looking at the presidents' compensation about a month ago, said spokesman Pete McAleer. "It's still fairly early in the process to know what the review will entail," he said.

Peter Burnham, president of Brookdale Community College in Monmouth County, resigned last month after an audit revealed he had spent college funds on alcohol, personal trips and clothes. The school's chief financial officer also was suspended.

Burnham was paid $216,000 annually under the terms of his contract and received perks such as a $1,500-a-month housing allowance, help paying his taxes in Colts Neck and $40,000 for tuition for his sons to attend other colleges.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office is looking at Burnham's spending at Brookdale.

Gloucester County College President Russell Davis resigned on April 14 after his board of trustees began reviewing his spending, and the Prosecutor's Office may become involved there as well.
