PRESAS-GARCIA AND LONGORIA CONTINUE TO EMBARASS THE DISTRICT

FORENSIC AUDITOR

We keep on hearing there is no money and now they want to hire a forensic auditor to go over all of BISD's books.  It was pointed out to Lulu Longoria that she was wrong on several accounts, and corrections had been made to past mistakes, but reality will not get in her way.  She is determined to do injury to Springston and Fuller.  I am convinced that the public watching are fully aware Presas-Garcia and Longoria are ill equipped to be on this board and seem driven to humiliate themselves.  This is such a waste of taxpayer money.  And of course we have Attorney Michel with Presas-Garcia holding his gonads refusing to give proper legal advice.  It serves no purpose to put out an RFQ to audit the entire district if in the end it will be rejected as too costly.  He should have told them to narrow it, but this would have angered Presas-Garcia so he does nothing.

The good news it was not for Healthsmart.  But as Peña pointed out they failed to inform the public the purpose of the motion.  When asked about the lack of specificity in the agenda item, Michel does what he does best - nothing and simply goes along to please Presas-Garcia.

ATTORNEY'S FEES AND TRAVEL AUDITS

What we learned is under Springston attorneys fees have come down significantly especially in the areas of special services and personnel.  This reality did not make Gonzales or Rendon look good.  It proved the point that Gonzales and Rendon were mismanaging the district and special services.

On travel expenses based on 5 year averages Longoria and Presas-Garcia will break all previous spending records.  I do not include Saavedra because like Cortez she travels extra as the district representative at national events and conferences. 


CHECK SCANDAL

Again it was explained to Presas-Garcia and Longoria that Compass bank absorbed 100% of the costs to BISD, and these two idiots refuse to accept the reality.  Again, driven to bankrupt the district, they want to get rid of Compass notwithstanding the fact they are paying higher interest rates.  The reality is Wells Fargo has not submitted an interest rate.  Why would you switch banks blindly without knowing the interest rates?  This is beyond bad policy.  The district has now put itself in a really bad position with deadlines.  It also tells other vendors that if they do not get administration's approval they can count on the board to give the losing vendor a chance to rebid and get the contract.  This again is bad policy.

E/O INSURANCE

Cavasos submits the only bid, which actually lowered the costs to the district while keeping the deductible at $50,000, versus raising it to $250,000, which is what the current company proposed and Longoria and Presas-Garcia voted against it.  These idiots will bankrupt this district if they get their way.  Johnny Cavasos stops buying Presas-Garcia lunch and this moron decides to settle the score by rejecting a policy which actually saves the district money.

PRESAS-GARCIA WILL NEVER GET IT

They came back from executive session with no discussion or action on Brett Springston.  Escobedo will be there protecting his interests in contracts to the end.  Springston and Escobedo are inseparable lovers who will never be split.

The FBI needs to hurry up. This district cannot afford a lack of leadership as the district heads towards major financial cuts.

You can have video of a board member taking cash and the FBI will still take 3-4 years - we are screwed

Have any lawsuits been settled?

BobbyWC said...

not that I know of - I think the Herald would have reported it and nothing on tonights agenda - I have not been following the agenda for weeks so I have no idea

- but again they have to vote on it and the Herald would have reported it

There has been no mention of lawsuits on the agendas. Some of the board members just put things on the agenda about Springston so they can try to intimidate him. They are wasting their time.

So can anyone tell me how a board member, with only one steady household income and 1 child in college, afford a new Cadillac??????????? Hmmm!!!

BobbyWC said...

Maybe she sold a million dollar house - she sells houses for a career - also she does not seem to know how to dress - I felt sorry for her tonight - she has ruined her hair with dyes - the last job looks like it was done by a 5 year old - the highlights were some of the worst I have ever seen - her hair is so overworked she looked like she had a wig of hay on

someone needs to tell her that make-up needs to blend with the natural colors of her skin, eyes and hair - her nails were a terrible color and made her look like a street person - her eye lid color was not that used by someone who knows make-up

she needs to let her hair grow out and give it a chance to restore itself - unless she enjoys looking like a scarecrow

I agree with the critical comments regarding the appearance of the head of the board. She should dress to look like a professional representing the district. But then again, the way some teachers report to work everyday surely does not set an example for the students. And, they do not get sent home like the students, because the principal is dressed worse than the teachers. Modern time? BS

It's funny how Escobedo steps in to "interpret" what Longoria is saying when she appears to get off the script she appears to be reading and gets lost in the details. She seems to always get shot down by Fuller and she never has a clue she is lost. I would like to see what would happen if Escobedo misses a meeting and Longoria starts going rogue without a safety net!

I can't believe the districts fate are in the hands of 2 secretaries and 2 doctors. One DR. who couldn't even get hired by BISD.

When it rains it pours.

So they are willing to lose money if they change banks? Are they Kidding? Why are they messing with BISD's monies???????? Who is getting what for changing banks?????????

The article in the paper mentions that Longoria want to hire the forensic auditor because she is concerned about the $60 million that has been spent over several years.

Bobby, do I remember correctly that the money spent was mostly the bond money that was being spent for new school construction?

If so, I think I also remember Fuller previously explaining this to Longoria and the board.

It used to be funny to watch the four amigos. Now I am simply embarrassed.

BobbyWC said...

You are 100% correct on the $60 million - on the bank isssue - I am filing a request with the bank regulators to investigate Wells Fargo in Brownsville for possible kick backs - before the check scandal these corrupt 4 were already pushing Wells Fargo - something is crooked here - I will go ahead and file the complaint and ask for an investigation - I will copy it to the chief lawyer for Wells Fargo and hopefully corporate will open its own investigation and take the ncessary action.

Good idea to check on the quick move to Wells Fargo.

Not that I have a problem with WF, it's just makes me feel better that someone is making sure that there is nothing lurking in the shadows.

Anonymous said...

Excuse ME!!! "No Problem with WF"? Wells Fargo does not have the same interest rates as Compass. Did no one read the newspaper article and understand the LOSS for BISD. It is in the THOUSANDS!!!!!!!!!!!! Come on the 4 amigos are angry with compass bank for personnal reasons and they are using BISD to pay them back. SOME ONE HELP BISD!!! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

BobbyWC said...

IN the investigation I am asking for the government to verify that Compass did not turn down one of the 4 for a loan - or a family member - I am also asking that they investigate any recent lones by WF to any of the 4 or their family members - this makes no sense - I suspect once general counsel for WF gets my federal complaint they will investigate locally and pull WF out if they see any evidence of influence peddling by the local office of WF.

12:08am anon, I meant I have had no problem with WF operationally. Yes, it does not seem to make sense to accept a lower interest rate.

Anonymous said...

BISD will lose over 300,000 dollars plus interest earned by going with WF. The four board members need to answer Why? It does not past the smell test. A new car srx Cad for the board president.

BobbyWC said...

guy you keep on pushing teh car issue - she is a real estate agent - she easily could have sold some very high priced homes - but I do have the complaint going to have the regulators over banks to investigate - this definately smells
