Raise Revoked for Yuba Chancellor

February 4, 2010

The Yuba Community College board on Wednesday voted to revoke a controversial $29,000 raise for Chancellor Nicki Harrington, News 10 reported. Board members said that they were starting a process to award a new raise, and that they acted because questions have been raised about whether their earlier vote to award the raise violated state open-meetings requirements. Board members said that they didn't believe they had violated the law, but wanted to remove any doubts. Many faculty and student leaders have spoken out against the raise, saying it was inappropriate at a time of deep budget cuts at the California community college.
