(Westfield, MA) – Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle and his board of trustees have been summoned to Boston to meet with members of the Patrick administration. A recent report revealed Dobelle used University credit cards for personal expenses and high-class business travel. Dobelle says the review by Westfield State accountants was flawed, and that the problems are all in the past. The chairman of the state’s board of higher education says he’s not satisfied with that answer. Dobelle’s spending is now under investigation by both the state’s inspector general and the attorney general.
