Just like our useless Trimet board of directors who handed Fred Hansen a pension for life of $16k a month.
The Daily Herald reported board members agreed to keep paying
his $252,000 salary through next February, and then for another six
months, any difference between his old salary and a future job's income.
And then there's the other gold-plated perks that drive us crazy in the
private sector. Clifford gets $35,243 for unused vacation days, $21,971
for unused sick days, reimbursement for his pension contributions, a
$78,000 payment for selling his home and another $75,000 for lawyer
In all, the Chicago Tribune reported Clifford could get $740,000 to walk away from his job.
