Westfield State trustees to consider suspending Dobelle

Trustees at Westfield State University plan to meet Oct. 16 to decide whether to suspend the school’s controversial president, Evan Dobelle, amid allegations that he repeatedly violated university credit card policy and squandered donations to the school. On Thursday, Dobelle asked for more time to answer detailed questions about his spending from state Higher Education Commissioner Richard Freeland. Several trustees argue that Dobelle should be suspended with pay until they can investigate a growing number of spending concerns. “We should not wait” to take action, trustee Kevin Queenin wrote in an e-mail calling for the special meeting.
