Page A4 THE HERALD, Provo, Utah, Sunday, May 27, 1990 Former UIA president says Iriinancaal questions resolve By HERALD STAFF and Wire Reports The former president of the Utah Education Association said Saturday he has resolved financial questions regarding his presidency of the teacher's organization and the UEA actually owes him money. A statement sent to UEA members Friday indicated there had been financial problems with James M. Campbell, Orem, who served as head of the organization for three years before stepping down in April. He cited health and family reasons when he resigned. According to the statement from UEA, "A review of James M. Campbell's account by an independent auditor brought forth proof of double vouchering, inappropriate use of the UEA credit card and removal of UEA property for personal use. Mr. Campbell has agreed to make restitution and to return or make payment for UEA property removed from the premises. All concerns and questions concerning Jim Campbell and UEA have been resolved." The statement was adopted by the 15-member UEA board of directors and read to the UEA Council of Local Presidents May 19. It has been printed in the May issue of the organization's newspaper. UEA officials and Campbell have declined to say how much money was involved except that is was significant. Campbell said he called for an independent audit after he resigned because UEA would not voluntarily give him the information he needed to reconcile expenses and reimbursement accounts. "Instead of providing the information I requested, however, UEA issued a press release that there were problems witji my accounts," he said. Finally, he said, a reconciliation was done and it showed "UEA owed me much more than I owed UEA." : He said what appeared to be double-billing was a confusing case : of receiving an advance from UEA for out-of-state travel, being reimbursed by the National Education Association and in turn reimbursing the state organization for the advance money. , He said he was aware that there was some reimbursement that needed to be done but one week after leaving office he was hospitalized with a heart attack and he was unable to immediately reconcile things. Campbell said he had never been paid "my per diem for in-state travel allowance as promised" by the UEA. When things were cleared, he said, he owed UEA some money, less than $1,700, and UEA owed him more money. Everything has been reconciled, he said. "I walked away knowing it was settled." He said credit cards were paid every month with the approval of the executive director. He said the property UEA said he had removed was a desk and bookcase that he used at home for a satellite office. He said had set up an office at his home to spend more time at home and still do his work. He said he had agreed to purchase the desk and bookcase rather than return them. Campbell said he had requested: "a full-blown audit of the UEA-accounts" and was disappointed they only looked at his accounts. He said the UEA board needs to look at the policies and procedures for handling accounts and should have done so three years ago. He said he would continue to receive salary and benefits for some time and plans to return to teaching in the Provo School District this fall, hopefully at Timpview High School where he taught prior to assuming the UEA position.
