CMC chief’s resignation doesn’t add up

Dear Editor:

I read Friday that Stan Jensen has resigned as president of Colorado Mountain College. Anybody who has worked there for the past four years was not surprised.

The board of trustees says this resignation had nothing to do with the SourceGas fiasco. And everybody is sworn to silence about the resignation while Jensen walks away with a $500,000 severance package. Something smells really bad here.

Nobody gets three times their annual salary as severance for voluntarily resigning. My taxes are going to pay part of that severance. The trustees want him to go away, and they’re using my money to make it happen.

These people run for the office of trustee. The next time they’re up for election, let’s do our homework.
