Presidential Perks: Inspector General Looking Into Montgomery College President's Spending

Montgomery County's Inspector General is looking into spending by Montgomery College's president following a News4 I-Team investigation. 

The I-Team investigated Dr. DeRionne Pollard after receiving complaints from staffers. School records show Pollard spent almost $160,000 on travel, meals and transportation since 2013, including sometimes for her wife, which is allowed in her contract.

The school's Board of Trustees approved that spending and an additional $70,000 on private security after, they say, the president received threats.

A spokesman said the college can afford the president's trips, which improve its visibility.

The county executive did ask the board about the spending in January. The board told him it was all authorized.
