Glen Ellyn, Ill. (CBS) — The Board of Trustees for the College of DuPage re-approved a controversial buyout package for outgoing President Robert Breuder by a vote of 6-1 at a packed meeting Wednesday evening.
Hundreds attended the meeting on the Glen Ellyn campus to voice their opposition to the package that has been labeled a golden parachute.
CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reports a procedural error forced the board to re-vote on Breuder’s platinum parachute, a buyout package of $763,000.
Wednesday night’s meeting was a re-do because it was alleged the first meeting didn’t abide by the opens meeting act, nor was the big dollar payout made public.
Breuder’s name is also set to be on the school’s Homeland Security Building.
