Alameda Education Foundation Shored-up

We reported weeks ago that the Alameda Education Foundation was squabbling over money, including a reported $60,000 annual salary for Executive Director Brook Briggance. Yesterday, AEF announced that Briggance was let go.

According to the most recent public records available, for the year ending June 30, 2007, the previous AEF executive director, Kristine Murray, was paid only $45,000. If the $60,000 salary figure for Briggance is accurate, that represents a 34% increase in pay for the executive director role from one year to the next. (Reports for the year ending June 30, 2008 are not available yet.)

Briggance’s lay-off comes at a time of declining donations to the Foundation, and right on the heels of a lawsuit by AEF against Count Me In Corporation, whom AEF alleges withheld some $80,000 of online contributions over a period of two years. (We’re still trying to understand a) who did the diligence on Count Me In before selecting them as the donation collector and b) who from AEF was overseeing Count Me In over those two years as donations accumulated to $80,000?)

Still no word if recently-elected AUSD board member Ronald Mooney will step down from his role of Secretary for AEF
