Napolitano Approved As UC President Amid Protests, Opposition

Via Andrew Stiles of National Review Online:

The University of California Regents on Thursday approved an annual salary of $570,000 for outgoing Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, who is leaving to become president of the state school system. She will also receive a “relocation allowance” of $142,500, and an annual car allowance of $8,916, according to public documents.

The annual salary is about $30,000 less than that of Napolitano’s predecessor, Mark Yudof, but nearly triple the salary she made in the Obama administration – just under $200,000 per year – which, according to President Obama, is “relatively modest pay.”

Students and immigration activists interrupted the regents meeting in San Francisco to protest Napolitano’s selection, some chanting “undocumented is not a crime.” Police arrested at least four people, according to reports.
