Questions About Salary for Texas Commissioner

February 8, 2010

The former executive director of a foundation that encourages college enrollment says she was fired because she questioned an arrangement in which the organization pays $40,000 annually to the commissioner of higher education in Texas, Raymund Paredes, The Dallas Morning News reported. Others also question the arrangement, given that the commissioner already has a $180,000 salary for his job. But Paredes and others defend the payments from the foundation, noting that he works on its behalf and that the arrangement violates no Texas laws.
