    Thanks but no thanks, he has his highest four years of salary ($420,000) and as a state employee his retirement will be based on that so what does he care, and I don't blame him. Would not even think twice about it.

    It isnt so. He was way over his head. Maybe he was a good teacher but a very poor administrator. How can you have people that work for you and dont check their monthly travel? How many state agencies allow their employees to submit travel without someone approving it?

    DON'T YOU PEOPLE REALIZE THAT THORP USED THE EVENTS TO GET RID OF A JOB HE IS NOT HAPPY WITH. HE WOULD MUCH RATHER BE A TEACHER WITHOUT ALL THE PRESSURES OF CHANCELLOR?
