Dobelle Wants Westfield To Pay

(Westfield, MA) – Retired Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle says he wants the university to cover his legal expenses related to an investigation of his allegedly lavish spending habits. Dobelle retired shortly after being placed on administrative leave after being accused of using university money for foreign and domestic trips and a variety of other purchases. Westfield State trustees have referred the request to the state Attorney General’s office.
