On golden parachutes

KRQE reports, link, State Rep Bill Rehm is introducing legislation that would limit the size of golden parachutes for public employees.  In the report, KRQE pointed to a couple of golden parachutes gone awry for taxpayers, NMSU President Barbara Couture's and the infamous UNM Head Football Coach Michael Locksley's.

KRQE chose to not mention APS Supt Winston Brooks' golden parachute, which the APS School Board just re-inflated to a whopping three quarters of a million dollars, possibly the largest parachute in the state, and despite the paucity of any empirical evidence of his either competence or his good character as Superintendent.

One wonders, why?
