Media Contact for Inspector General writes letter to the Middlesex Community College Board of Trustees on its upcoming vote to remove Evan Dobelle’s name from the library on the college’s Lowell campus

The letter reminds the trustees that the OIG’s 2014 review of Mr. Dobelle’s spending practices while he served as president of Westfield State University found that Mr. Dobelle abused his authority, misspent Westfield State University and Westfield State Foundation funds on personal expenses and violated the public trust. The letter notes that Mr. Dobelle is banned from any future involvement in the Massachusetts higher education system. In an effort to enhance public trust and promote accountability, the letter urges the  Middlesex Community College Board of Trustees to remove his name from the school’s library.
