BROWNSVILLE VOICE ARCHIVES ON BISD

ARCHIVES

As I gather more research this archive will expand - but stay on this same page. Updates may be once a week or once a month. The first few days will see updates as I add more research regarding Presas-Garcia, Escobedo, Longoria, and Saavedra.

UPDATE:  JOE ROD V. PRESAS-GARCIA

My analysis is based on reading the court pleadings.  On January 17, 2012, Joe Rod through counsel filed a non-suit without prejudice to refile same.  This means he can refile the lawsuit.  The first thing I asked myself is, why was this not blasted all over the internet claiming Presas-Garcia kicked Joe Rod's ass.  The answer is simple - she did not.

The pleadings indicate that a legal issue developed as to whether or not Presas-Garcia as a matter of law was part of the settlement when BISD paid Joe Rod separately from Presas-Garcia.  But for Presas-Garcia's conduct in disclosing Joe Rod's information to Carlos Quintanilla, BISD never would have had to pay a penny.

My guess based on experience is the parties agreed to a gag order.  Neither side is speaking.  This is not unusual.  The fact Joe Rod dismissed without prejudice means he believes he has something which could allow him to sue Presas-Garcia again, but individually.

A reader reminded me about Presas-Garcia's Aquatic center problems - I have added this under her name

[4]    FBI drops Healthsmart Investigation against Healthsmart and City of Lubbock Officials.  Feb. 2. 2012.  But key here in relationship to Brownsville is how Ted Parker did business.

See, http://brownsvillevoice.blogspot.com/2011/11/understanding-healthsmart-con-job-facts.html

¶ 109 - This paragraph contains the text message of Ted Parker which shows his use of inside information to be able to bid on the COL contract.  The text message is not disputed.  This is how Ted Parker does business, and it is fair to assume this is how he did business in Brownsville.  Healthsmart continues to fight release of the Lubbock audit which shows it alleged wrongdoing.  The matter is before both the Dallas and Travis county courts of appeal.  Litigation between the City of Lubbock and Healthsmart remains pending.

What in the Heck is Cata Presas-Garcia doing in Dallas with Quintanilla. She took money from the Aquatic Center and she was not charged with Theft? Why? Who protected her? Oh my goodness, it is true, this woman goes anywhere she thinks will get her money. Que Triste para Brownsville.......

BobbyWC said...

You need to look at her defense - she states she only had it for a short period for safe keeping. I suspect it was more about bad judgment than theft which is why she was never accused of theft.

the real question is, does she this as a good business practice - because if she does I would not want to trust her with my money.

It,s not a bad judgment. We only know "what she said about the deposits". What was taken and given back to BISD? During the audit, over 7000 dollars was missing. Any other former employee would have been charge formally with a crime.

Hey maybe we can get another quarter million dollar forensic auditor to look over Cata's deposits and withdrawals at BISD .Oh, that's right, she's the one who hired the firm in the first place to fire and move everyone she hated. I guess she wouldn't do the same for her.

BobbyWC said...

Comment rejected - no matter what I think of Presas-Garcia it is total BS when someone posts a comment with "rumor is" Rumors are not facts and I do not allow for those posts.

Now I am trying to track down a lead on a story related to why she changed real estate brokers. So far none of the sources have been willing to verify the claims. Until I have a person with a face willing to verify the claim I will not post it

When will they release the forensic audit report to the public?

Will they help substantiate the claims mentioned above?

I wonder if these board majority members are also going to order a forensic audit at the Aquatic Center???

School auditors disclosed missing funds at the aquatic center and .."there are probably thousands of dollars unaccounted for" suddenly 2 years of deposit books went missing she disclosed under deposition that she co minguled school funds into her account. The school auditors and outside auditors knew about this and did nothing...some principals have been reassigned for using $150.oo from PTA funds, yet an employee, head of the audit committee, board member can be involved in audited funds 0f $7326.00 and Nada.
