Evan Dobelle Accused Of Spending Lavishly At Westfield

by Categorized: Hartford Date:

This story from Sunday\’s Boston Globe might sound familiar to folks at Trinity College:

\"evandobelle\"… in the fall of 2008, they started getting Dobelle’s bills: $8,000 for a four-night stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok; $883 from the upscale clothing store Louis Boston; $10,000 for tickets to shows at Tanglewood; more than $4,000 for limousine rides.

By the time the Westfield State College Foundation closed Dobelle’s credit card two years later, records show he had run up more than $200,000 in credit card charges to the foundation, a private group that raises money for scholarships and educational programs. Dobelle also agreed to repay more than $20,000 in expenditures he originally charged to the foundation.
