Westfield State president's spending questioned again

Posted: Updated:
WESTFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The head of the state Department of Higher Education wants to meet with Westfield State President Evan Dobelle to review his spending.

In a letter to Dobelle, Charles Desmond said that a report on Dobelle's spending of school money, "raises serious concerns."

Desmond said he and other top state education officials want to meet separately with members of the Westfield State Board of Trustees.

The report found Dobelle billed the Westfield State Foundation for more than $200,000 in travel, meals and entertainment.

Dobelle said the spending was to promote the university and has repaid some of the money.
