Shifting sands

Could it be that we are being played?

The chief financial officer of the city retired right in the middle of the budget process.  We wrote about that in Strange retirement.

The former chief financial officer of the city was featured in a Times article the other day  where she said that the process of giving a big contract to one of the superintendent’s cronies was not “transparent”.

The superintendent probably is not happy with her.  Will he ask for her resignation?

If that happens she will be out of work, but fortunately for her the city has a position open.

Does the new mayor like her?  She served on the appointed board of managers of EPISD while he did.  They arranged for her to go to work for the district the first day Texas law allowed a former board member to become an employee.  She appeared in a published picture of the new mayor’s announcement of his run for mayor.

Stay tuned.

We deserve better

    There are few things more valuable to the investor/donor class than a public employee who is willing to lie on your behalf.

    Brutus is right on the money. His prognosticating skills are right up there with Carnac the Magnificent.

    It’s all a game and CAC is a player. Cabrera doesn’t dare fire her. She’s busy grabbing all the power she can, and finding all the skeletons. Margo still controls Cabrera and CAC and doesn’t want that power to erode. The City’s CFO caved when it became apparent that it was to be business as usual. Soon the city will have a new sports arena, higher taxes, more employees and less taxpayers, while gaining many more “residents”. Same thing is happening at EPISD. It’s overrun with consultants, “central office” employees, and more administrators, all vying for more money for programs that don’t work.
