UW President Mark Emmert Resigns

Posted by Warren Peterson on April 28, 2010

After six years as President of the University of Washington, Mark Emmert resigned and will become President of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). A friend asked me if Emmert is the first person making over $400,000 to flee the state in anticipation of I-1077 (income tax on the “rich”) passing. I wonder if his replacement will demand a bigger salary to offset the income tax? Another unintended consequence of liberalism, eh?

Yes, Indiana, home of the NCAA, has an income tax but they also have a Republican governor and state assembly so they are not in the same league as Washington when it comes to budget shortfalls.
