WESTFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Changes at the top of the Westfield State University administration are continuing.
A school spokesman says the school’s vice president for administration and finance Milton Santiago has submitted his resignation.
The resignation comes just weeks after President Evan Dobelle stepped down after some people questioned what they called extravagant travel and spending habits. Dobelle said his spending was to promote the university.
A university spokeswoman says Santiago’s resignation less than a year after he was hired was voluntary and the controversy over Dobelle may have been a factor. Trustees last month had asked Santiago to develop a plan to reduce the number of credit cards issued to administrators from 40 to around five and centralize all travel in a single office.
