Officers have been raking in fat salaries at the nonprofit NTC Foundation, which San Diego city taxpayers bailed out last week to the tune of $1.1 million after county tax assessor Ernie Dronenburg forced the group to pay property taxes owed by its “for-profit” subsidiary. According to the foundation’s latest report to the Internal Revenue Service, filed November 16 of last year and covering 2009, chief financial officer Larry Eyler was paid $148,269; executive director Alan Ziter got $123,558; and operations director Lew Witherspoon received $103,788. Construction manager Neal Singer, listed as an independent contractor, was paid $147,100. Pam Hamilton-Lester, onetime executive director of the City’s Centre City Development Corporation and now the NTC Foundation’s president and chief executive, got $75,886 for a 30-hour week, according to the document.

I have heard Alan Ziter complaining about how everyone makes more than he does. He is way over paid. The only thing he really promotes is himself. Look at some of thier choices across the board. Alan Ziter being our moral compass didn't think that nude paintings in the hall way were appropriate at a place supposedly supporting the arts. Will they also dictate what kind of dance performances we should see. Im kind of surprized Mr. Ziter still has his job.

Guess that explains why the Luce Auditorium is still falling apart and has yet to be renovated.
