In Real Estate, They Call It a Buyer’s Market: Pima Community College Interim Chancellor Harris’ Contract

paidoverFrom the Tucson Sentinel (4/10/13):

The interim chancellor of Pima Community College, Zelema Harris, will be paid more than $26,000 monthly, plus housing, car and travel benefits, according to her contract with the school.

Harris, who takes over from another interim chancellor on April 15, was hired last week to temporarily helm the administratively troubled college.

She will fill a seat being vacated by interim Chancellor Suzanne Miles, who’s stepping down from that position. Meanwhile, PCC is continuing a search for a permanent CEO.

Miles was paid $203,000 as interim college chief. PCC’s last permanent chancellor, Roy Flores, was paid $288,000. Harris’ annualized salary would be $317,000.

Sure, it sounds like a lot of money because it is a lot of money. But, really, c’mon: how much money does it take for anyone in their right right mind to strap on a situation like this?
