Governor Objects to Salary of UC Riverside Chancellor
California Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat whose position makes him a member of the University of California Board of Regents, voted (with the minority) against the salary set for the new chancellor of the university's Riverside campus, The Los Angeles Times reported. The salary proposed and approved for Kim Wilcox, the new chancellor, was $354,000, 9 percent more than the previous chancellor received. Brown said he supported the selection of Wilcox, but objected to the increased salary. "I consider the growth in inequality in California, the U.S. and the world in general a problem that is tearing apart the social fabric."
