BART paid former GM $330K following departure

Posted on June 11, 2013

OAKLAND, Calif. — An investigation by the San Jose Mercury News found the Bay Area Rapid District paid former GM Dorothy Dugger more than $330,000 over an approximate 19-month span following her resignation more than two years ago.

By remaining on BART's payroll, Dugger accrued almost two extra months of vacation time, according to the report. The months of extra pay were on top of the $920,000 BART paid Dugger to leave after the agency's board botched an effort to fire her by violating public meetings laws.
