CFO Jimmy Patronis: UCF Board of Trustees Right to Delay Dale Whittaker Severance Package Vote

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.– Upon hearing the University of Central Florida's (UCF) Board of Trustees delayed their meeting to possibly award outgoing president Dale Whittaker a severance package, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement:
“As the state’s financial watchdog, I believe the Board of Trustees was right to delay this vote and additional time will provide an opportunity for the Florida Legislature to address these issues. Whether intentional or not, if the misappropriation of university funding like what occurred with UCF’s construction spending becomes a systemic problem, it may negatively impact their credit rating. UCF students absolutely deserve better and the people of Florida deserve better.”
