This came in from Helen Marshall the other day:
Perusing my El Paso Inc today I am reminded that among the six nominees is Carmen Arrieta-Candelaria, described as the EPISD deputy superintendent for finance and operations. Her “most significant impact” came in her 2004-2014 tenure with the City, where she “headed financing work on different public projects, the new city hall and Southwest University Park among them. Matching projects with financing and utilizing different financing strategies made them happen.”
Need they say more? Might be worth mentioning the Quality of Life bond that seriously underestimated the costs of major projects…nah, who cares about that? Or the fraudulent costs of the baseball stadium…nah, just a waste of ink.
I feel sorry for the other nominees.
