How the money goes

Posted By on Fri, Aug 15, 2008 at 2:41 PM

The UCA Foundation is compiling information on specific uses of the $70,000 or so expense reimbursements it has been making annually to President Lu Hardin.

The first partial accounting is here. Routine stuff, generally, but you can see how a college president can build cred and make friends in the local community who'll speak up for him at Board meetings . Hardin sent $10,000 to the Conway Chamber of Commerce and $5,000 to the Downtown Partnership in 2006-07. The Democratic Black Caucus picked up $500 and tax-deductible contributions to the UCA Foundation also helped pay $2,000 toward the last party for legislative leadership. It's called networking. And it's free, after a fashion.
