Dobelle Files Spending Report, Releases Video

Governor Patrick says he supports a move by state officials to withhold funding from Westfield State University.  Speaking to reporters Monday, Patrick said the allegations against University president Evan Dobelle are very serious.  He said Dobelle didn’t help himself by hiring Boston PR bigwig George Regan to act as his spokesman.  Higher Education Commissioner Richard Freeland froze funding to Westfield State last week after Dobelle failed to respond to a list of questions about his controversial spending habits.  Dobelle has fired back against his critics with a video released by the Regan PR firm (see entire video below) and has also issued a 20 page accounting of his travel expenditures and credit card use.
