200,000 Reasons
to Subtract Count$

Sounds like a lot to pay a university president in the poorest state in the nation with a comparatively small campus.  Thing is, $200k per year doesn't sound bad enough since John Counts stands to make close to $1million over the next three years with $926,000 in salary, annuity and retention bonus plus unknown or unconfirmed value of housing, auto, and expense account.

This decision by the Board of Regents occurs in an environment where a bunker mentality prevails, public accountability is treated with disdain and questions of cronyism and conflict of interest must be raised.  Representative Manny Herrera sponsored, and the NM House of Representatives passed, 
HM 82
in the recent legislative session which resolves 

"...that the higher education department be requested to study the hiring policies and practices of public institutions of higher education;..."

Faculty, students, staff, and residents of Grant County gathered for three nights on the steps of the Fine Arts Center Theater to protest this outlandish raid on the public treasury to reward this no acCount for declining enrollment, increased tuition, across the board department budget cuts, fiscal incompetence, and pure hog at the trough gluttony.
