Despite critics who say the reward is premature, trustees have given Chancellor Philip Westin a $10,000 raise seven months after he was hired to head the Ventura County Community College District. Pete Tafoya, president of the board of trustees, said Westin deserved the 8% raise because he has made the district more efficient and put the college system in line to receive millions in state money to compensate for growth in student enrollment.

Some educators say they don't envy David Mertes for his recent appointment as chancellor of the California community colleges system. After all, they explain, his predecessor, Joshua Smith, angrily quit last August after only two years in the job and little success in reforming the 106 community colleges.
