In comparison, Prime Minister Howard will get $330, 356 annually if re-elected this year. Among other things the article states, in relation to La Trobe University:
'Senior management at La Trobe closed ranks this week when the HES queried a listing in its 2006 annual report that shows someone - believed to be former vice-chancellor Brian Stoddart - received between $1,470,000-$1,479,999 last year.I don't know if this information is correct or complete but it does seem a lot of money. Of course once the envy is foregone it is essential to demand good performance from highly-paid leaders in all fields.
A well-placed source told the HES the figure was the combined annual remuneration and a $948,000 payout for Professor Stoddart, who assumed the top job at short notice when Michael Osborne resigned in late 2005. Professor Stoddart left in December after it was announced Paul Johnson would succeed him'.
