(Westfield, MA) — State Commissioner of Higher Education Richard Freeland is cracking down on Westfield State University President Evan Dobelle. Freeland has given Dobelle seven days to respond to a list of pointed questions about his lavish spending and high-class business travel. Dobelle has so far refused to respond to scathing reports from the State Inspector General’s office and the school’s auditor. Freeland says if Dobelle does not answer him by October 3rd, he’ll take action.
