Ex-UMass Chief Loses Bid to Boost His Pension

September 26, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Former University of Massachusetts President William M. Bulger lost a bid to boost his annual pension by $32,000.

He already qualifies for nearly $200,000, the biggest pension in state history. A state board refused to increase it by counting other benefits as income when calculating the pension.

Bulger, 69, resigned Sept. 1 under pressure from Gov. Mitt Romney and Atty. Gen. Thomas Reilly. They argued that Bulger had not done enough to assist authorities in the search for his fugitive mobster brother.
