Never let it be said that United Way doesnt give back to the community. In addition to the $21 million it doled out to local nonprofits last year, the charity awarded its CEO Gloria Pace King with a $1.2 million compensation package. Board leadership said officials worried that, without the eye-poppingly increased retirement fund payments included in the package, King might not be able to retire with at least 60 percent of her pay. King does, after all, have three homes to maintain. Meanwhile, demand is up at the citys shelters and food banks are scrambling to keep up with community needs. Lets hope that the agencys board members who, judging by their day jobs, arent exactly living paycheck-to-paycheck themselves may see the irony of paying King so excessively. But dont hold your breath.
