Amid budget shortfall, new St. Petersburg College president to make less than predecessor - Claire McNeill, Tampa Bay Times

As a $6.2 million budget shortfall looms for St. Petersburg College, its new leader will make about $30,000 less than outgoing president William Law Jr. When lifelong employee Tonjua Williams takes the reins in July, if she accepts the contract SPC trustees have approved for her, she will make $300,000 in base pay with a deferred compensation package of $55,000. She will also get 30 days paid leave per year, and SPC will provide a car for her to use. The board's decision about Williams' contract comes in the wake of nine staff layoffs, part of the college’s response to a tight budget year fueled by declining enrollment. Law wrote a memo to SPC faculty and staff last week explaining the cuts.
