Dr. Kennedy’s back-up plan in Maine
Robert A. Kennedy’s nomination to become president of the state’s college system may have sailed through the Board of Regents last week, but he had a backup plan if things went awry. Kennedy was under contract to begin teaching biology at the University of Maine Jan. 15, according to the school’s student newspaper.
Colleen Flanagan, a spokeswoman for the Regents, wrote in an email statement, “Dr. Kennedy’s contract is unpaid and month-by-month. He plans to end his contract as soon as possible, given his new role here in Connecticut.”
Kennedy informed the university Wednesday that he would not be returning.
