INTERNAL DOCUMENTS SHOW CONTRACT RIGGING - THE END IS NEAR 
FOR ESCOBEDO BROTHERS

I want to be up front with my readers - none of the 7 Trustees come out smelling good in this one.  The incontrovertible evidence shows all 7 Trustees - this means including no vale la pena Peña, Colunga, and Aguilar in addition to the regular suspects Escobedo, Presas-Garcia, Longoria and Saavedra were all party to this cover-up.  If Peña had an ounce of integrity in her body she will immediately announce she is not seeking reelection.  Prospective candidates need to know her seat is open.

And yes, based on what I just said - some sources will dry up.  On numerous occasions it has been made clear to me that I better stop telling the truth about Colunga, Aguilar and Peña - I will try again on the only rule that matters - "No sacred cows."

If you want a blog which is run by a paid hack which is nothing more than lies and deception - have ad it - but the BV will stand its ground - "No Sacred Cows."

Let's begin with the definition of extortion -

ex·tor·tion/ikˈstôrSHən/

Noun:
The practice of obtaining something, esp. money, through force or threats.

WE NOW KNOW HOW CARLOS GUERRA BECAME THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/116896989/CarlosGuerra

According to this letter sent by Carlos Guerra to the Board and Carl Montoya, on or about July 20, 2011, he was removed as the Assistant Superintendent for Operations.  He was reassigned to the non-existent position of Assistant Superintendent for Support Services.  After only 2 work days he was then assigned to the position of Administrator for Guidance and Counseling. The letter is dated February 14, 2012.

¶ 3 is a killer - Carlos Guerra goes on to detail that he was removed as the Assistant Superintendent for Operations because in the past he had refused to sign off on change orders to accommodate specific vendors.  You see Carlos Guerra could not be relied on to do the dirty work for the Escobedo brothers so he was removed - so he alleges.

THE EXTORTION

According to Carlos Guerra a few weeks after July 20, 2011, the change orders were made to accommodate the vendor of choice - Jaime Escobedo.  The last paragraph makes clear - if Carlos Guerra's claims go  forward Enrique Escobedo and others are going down over the change orders to accommodate Jaime Escobedo's company.  This my friends is more than enough to bring extortion claims against Carlos Guerra - of course it would be for a jury to decide if there was criminal intent.  I admit this sometimes can be a fine line. 

I always tell people - if you are reporting criminal conduct, never include anything which can be construed as a threat.  Carlos Guerra should have taken his claims and evidence directly to the FBI.  He then should have sent his letter informing the board of his actions and his theory as to why he was removed.  This would have avoided an extortion claim.  He got what he wanted, while failing to report the claim to law enforcement.

The change orders were for BAC.  The original vendor was approved as the lowest bidder in the amount of $398,200.

According to BH archives Carlos Guerra stated he was offered the job of Athletic Director on February 28, 2012 - just 14 days after his letter to the Board. 

http://www.rgvsports.com/articles/guerra-11181-brownsville-interim.html

Why is it that this letter was not put on the agenda until March 6, 2012?  See item 18

Rosario Peña has put into writing that the contract which eventually went to Jaime Escobedo was not put out for bids.  Rosario Peña, Purchasing Administrator, in  fact has verified that the contract went to Jaime Escobedo's company. Ms. Peña, my advice to you - grab your documents and run to the FBI this morning.

Of note, the contract was originally set to go to Circle Industries - which had the lowest bid.  My source is telling me Jaime Escobedo's company was not an authorized vendor for the original equipment requested by BISD.  This is why change orders had to be done.  According to Mr. Bishop of Circle Industries, lies were put out by BISD that he no longer wanted the contract.  In fact he was asked to put same into a written statement.  He refused. 

About the same time Mr. Bishop received the phone call from ROFA Architects in McAllen alleging that Circle Industries was no longer interested in the contract, BISD Board of Trustees were approving another contract which involved the Escobedo brothers.

Mr. Bishop was then informed by Juan Estrada of Southern Mechanical (the contractor under which Circle Industries was working) that he had received a directive to not use Circle Industries and that in fact BISD had decided to give the contract to Jaime Escobedo, brother to BISD trustee Enrique Escobedo.  Remember, I have the document signed off by Rosario Peña, Purchasing Administrator, verifying that the contract was never sent out for bids.


A REMINDER ON ANOTHER  CONTRACT INVOLVING JAIME ESCOBEDO

Here is BV's original post on the issue.

http://brownsvillevoice.blogspot.com/2011/02/mr.html

Recommend awarding Bid #11-094 Security Equipment Installation and Repairs for Alarm
and CCTV District-wide to several vendors. (Annual Bid)


Click below on item 11-094, and then click on paragraph 23 - Bidder is barred from communicating with the Board Members. Who believes Jaime Escobedo and Enrique Escobedo did not communicate?

http://www.bisd.us/Purchasing/bids_for_vendors.htm

On April 5, 2011, Chief Garcia's department got behind the new recommendations for item 11-094.  Next week I will document the evidence which proves the protection being provided to Chief Garcia, in exchange for his cooperation with the corrupt 4.

I have done extensive research on who was awarded the contract on April 5, 2011.  I cannot find anything.  If you have access to this document please forward it to me.

The day Colunga, Aguilar, and Peña got the Carlos Guerra letter they should have brought it to the attention of the FBI.  The letter is more than enough to open an investigation for extortion.  Where the investigation leads is another question. 

My sources are telling me Arturo Michel called all trustees and several BISD staff members and told them that under no circumstances was this letter to go public.  There was a clear message that BISD was to hide this  document.  This was illegal advice.  Only god knows what lies he told the Trustees on March 6, 2012, in executive session.

Heads up Colunga, Aguilar, and Peña - when your lawyer in Executive Session advises you to obstruct justice and to give into extortion to protect another trustee and his brother, you leave the meeting and call law enforcement. 

In my view, the Carlos Guerra letter forever seals Colunga, Aguilar, and Peña as willing participants in this mess.  Please, I do not want to hear they have a duty to cooperate - if you believe this you are as corrupt as the corrupt 4.

No Trustee in their right mind would even consider the legal advice of Arturo Michel.

I am very close to saying - "I'm done." Done in terms of waiting for local action. It is clear to me Armando Villalobos will not act.  I am convinced that the local FBI office is incapable of law enforcement unless it is politically motivated.  They have no political motivation in this case. 

I do believe it is time I bring my documentation to Washington and drop it on Director Mueller's desk with a request the entire FBI management team in Brownsville be reassigned.

Today Villalobos can go to a grand jury and get the key documents from BISD - he will not - this boy is in his office hiding, hoping to wait this out until he goes to Congress as a member of the House of Representatives - hey Mando - never, ever going to happen.

Wouldn't the simple process be that someone file a complaint regarding the extortion with the BISD Police Department and then they would be obligated to investigate or forced to turn it over to a law enforcement agency with jurisdiction and the ability to investigate.

Bobby,
It is obvious that Guerra has become one of them by getting what he wants. His threats worked for him and I guess that is all that matters to him.
The HR department is a cesspool of corruption. That department needs to be outed for what it is.

ALL the board members cover for each other.
The Escobedo brothers are also on the citys tit. Cabrones!!!!

BobbyWC said...

I can assure the Escobedo Brothers when it comes to COB Melissa Zamora is the least of their problems

bad news for Montoya is, no lawyer is advising him as to the consequences of being a paid hack in criminal conduct

Ben Neece is as clueless about the law as they come

When the investigation comes - and it has - Montoya will either disclose how much he has been paid or lie - if he lies they will prove it anyone and then charge him with obstruction

The end is near - it may a few months or even a year - but for sure the contract game playing is at its end - if Jaime Escobedo has anything to do with a bid it is being heavily scrutinized

So since Guerra got Chavez' job, did any of this play into Chavez reassignment?

BobbyWC said...

I think all of this goes to the machinations of the corrupt 4. I think Chavez will have no problem succeeding in his lawsuit.

My bigger issue at this time is, being cut off as a source

Some people are real mad because they want me to run cover for Colunga, Aguilar, and Peña -


Although I will say I did get several phone calls this morning informing me they finally understand why Peña has to go - hopefully this will spread and Peña will finally realize she needs to go

How do you know guerra didn't report his findings to authorities? Check facts before reporting. Not only did he report it, but he filed a grievance and a lawsuit. That's why he's demoted. He was told to go to athletics or face another worse location. He was never going to stay as guidance Adm. They have someone in mind and the fact that he was advocating for district counselors didn't help him. This board and administration is not pro counselor. He accepted the stadium job because he truly cares about kids and his background as a referee helped him make that decision. And, be advised, he was told it was temporary as they have someone in mind for that slot/think bisd, socorro isd/mc llen isd...connect the dots people. Guerra doesn't fit in because he is "by the book". So, before you throw stones, get more information. He is a victim like the rest of us. Dr. Rita survived being cut like Harris and guerra. Haven't you wondered why? Geez, just when I'm defending the "bv", I read this semi-accurate tale. Tom is awesome by the way...he will "kick it" for the vikings!!! Cheers, it's Friday!

BobbyWC said...

you have your facts all wrong - he filed the grievance - yes - when it went no where he sent the board the threatening letter letting them know if the process continued he was going to bring out the Escobedo matter - he then got the job as interim AD - I have connected the dots - had he filed a lawsuit alleging the wrongdoing by Escobedo why was it not reported on - why did his attorney not go public with the lawsuit - I have checked sources - they know nothing of a lawsuit

He did not go to law enforcement to report the changing of the specs - he simply put it into a letter to the board - the board panicked and he got the job he wanted

Anonymous said...

Mr. Guerra did not ask for the job AD. He was call in by the Supt. for HR. The board minority is asking for a complete investigation on the letter submitted by Mr. Guerra. Give them time, and they will follow up with law enforcements not local. Your picture is correct it will explode to the maximum. Escobedo and Cadillac Caty cannot hide anymore with all the bribes with vendors. Say good bye Cadillac Caty and fake Doctor your days our number. Cadillac Caty filed bankruptcy in 2004 thru 2009. Cadillac Caty cannot hold a job. Cadillac Caty filed bankruptcy 2004; she had $ 80.00 cash on hand, $ 850.00 dollars in jewelry, and 3 old autos. After released from bankruptcy, Cadillac Caty buys a $ 45,000 dollars Cadillac SUV, jewelry, and expenses clothes. Go figure?

BobbyWC said...

First I am going to ad to your comment - one year before he bankruptcy filing she was given $25,000 in a settlement from BISD - how in 12 months does she go from an extra $25,000 in her account to nothing.

I am not playing this game he was called in by Atkinson - it was known he wanted the AD job - he did not have to ask - they needed to silent him so they have Atkinson call him in and give him what he wanted. The fact it is interim means nothing.

On the minority investigation - I guess you are trying to convince my readers Colunga, Aguilar and Peña are all idiots to the infinite degree.

Who inside BISD is going to investigate this

Arturo Michel told them already everything was perfectly legal - he played a distraction on them and Peña just drooled on Mitchel the way she always does and said "I believe you."

the fact there was no bid is meaningless to this issue. It is possible three levels down the process no bid was required by a subcontractor

The facts which matter are - the specs originally said no substitutes or changes - the changes were made when it was learned American Security could not meet the original specs- The original company with the lowest bid meeting the specs was then dumped in favor of American Security.

The illegality at the big level has nothing to do with whether or not the new subcontractor needed the approval of the board - all that matter was compliance with the original contract - albeit with new specs to accommodate Jaime Escobedo.

The Escobedo Brothers are complete and total idiots - they think by paying to have Zamora trashed things will go away

Zamora is only a very, very small part of what his happening within the city. The dam has busted and city employees are lining up with years of evidence against certain vendors and certain COB administrators

If he Guerra was not going to be replace they wouldn't of posted the job. He does not meet the qualification at all but does that matter to SA. He will not stay AD.

BobbyWC said...

We have seen enough job placements to know job qualifications do not matter. At this point no matter what they do Guerra and the Board come off bad - if they remove him they are admitting he was not qualified but put him there to shut him up - he no longer has leverage over them on this issue.

If they keep him there they are admitting to giving him the job to quiet him - by removing him they would be admitting they put him there to silent him and now that the story is out they no longer need to silence him

No matter what they do they are screwed

What I know for sure is, a verbatim press release written by Arturo Michel and submitted by Drue Brown will be printed in the Herald stating all is well and all was very legal

you go Daniel Cavasos - keep on running interference for the corruption

Mr. Guerra is a stand up guy. Just because the BV hears things from individuals does not make it Godspeak. Anyone can say anything and just because they work for a certain department doesn't mean squat. The truth BWC is that Mr Guerra did report it and did file a grievance and lawsuit. Just because his attorney isn't as loud as you would like him to be doesn't mean it was not filed. Tom didm't agree with the dismissal of Campos and after telling Alarcon and Atkinson he wouldn't fire him was when Tom was reassigned. The auidt was done to support all of the moves by Dr. Atk as the board has now lost control of her. What will happen next?? Pena vs CPG in the next election? Wow...,much like Powers vs CPG (but he lost). Maybe Powers will come back and give it another try against HIS SISTER IN LAW!!! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

You don't, so zip it!

BobbyWC said...

You are simply misrepresenting the facts because you do not like the truth.

While I did not need to check because I know the process - for your benefit I just checked on line and there is no lawsuit filed by Carlos Guerra in state court or federal court - it does not exist - he cannot file the lawsuit until after he completes the administrative process - you are simply very, very mistaken

Further my post as to Carlos is based on 3 sources - his letter - his owrds in the Herald (All I said was he said he was called in and offered the job) and the documents signed by Rosario Peña - now there were other sources but they had nothing to do with Carlos Guerra

No one is saying he did not file a grievance - that is where he messed up - further what kind of nit job lawyer would allow his client to sign such a letter - if he had a lawyer the lawyer would have send the letter.

You are simply running cover for Carlos Guerra - if he had already reported it why then did he have to threaten the board with disclosure of the Escobedo facts if the matter went forward.

If he had reported it to law enforcement, which he had not, he would have stated same in his letter.

Okay people, meaning the three posts I rejected - you are idiots

I only went with the post about the police being called related to Luci and Sylvia after I verified the story through 2 different sources - I am not now going to allow some cowardly con artist anony poster claim it was a different trustee involved. When I get the police report I will report what is in the police report and that will settle it.

Yesterday I also rejected a comment involving someone's child

To the best of my recollection I have only once allowed for the children to come into this - this was when Presas-Garcia used her son to go on an antigay tirade against Rick Zayas- that was a very unique situation - do not bother with stupid posts trying to bring people's children into this

The other posts rejected this morning are trying to put the blame for Guerra's letter on everyone but Guerra - I am not going to allow for annony posts destroying people's careers - I am very careful about checking facts - sometimes I will let certain posts through for the sole purpose of discrediting the post

Guerra wrote the letter - He was right in exposing the truth - his problem was he did not give a rats ass about anyone but himself

He did not report it to law enforcement - he tried to use the facts as a way to get what he wanted - first evidence he is a dishonorable man

Second evidence is - he is told Tom Chavez is being removed as AD and then asked if he wants it - he says yes - he knows by his own admission how these people are playing - he is threatening to expose the Escobedo brothers if he does not get what he wants

So what does he do - he allows these scumbags to do to Tom Chavez what they did to him.

Guerra is a first class scumbag - I have no idea how he can face his staff or himself now that the story has broke - but he will - why? because scumbags have no problem facing themselves

You are right about Guerra, on February 28 in the afternoon, 5 minutes after Chavez was removed, Guerra was named interim athletic director. Chavez was going out of HR with his walking papers and Guerra was going in to accept his new job. There are witnesses to this. Furthermore, he had the letter in his position and administration knew about it. They got rid of Chavez and gave him the job. If you put 2 and 2 together, he is going to be the new AD since he gave up his previous assignment which was posted right after he left. Why would he give that up and why would they post it immediately if they didn't already have the AD job wrapped up, beyond interim. He wasn't going to leave that to chance. Naming him as "interim" was just another one of their "proedures." Somehow administration knew Guerra had the now famous letter in his posesesion and in order to keep that letter from being exposed, they offered him the AD job, a job he has always wanted as he has stated.

Anonymous said...

Chavez would not fire Campos as directed by Dr A because there was no justification, evidence or documentation to support it. Chavez was ordered to support the administration on their decision and he would not, therefore putting his own job in jeopardy. One thing about Chavez, he is a straight shooter and is fiercely loyal to his players, coaches and to the district. Sylvia had a plan for the AD position all along and it included her good friend from Socorro and Cata’s supporter Medrano. She was working it real hard to nail Chavez who she could not control. Of course there is also the hatred Cata has for anyone associated with Joe Rod, so he was a doomed man. Didn’t matter he did not have a blemish on his record, had great success as a coach and athletic director and was truly about the kids. Ask his former players and their parents. So when the Guerra threat came along and they were all scrambling for cover, the solution was simple: axe Chavez and give Guerra the job he always wanted. If you take a look at a calendar, on the afternoon of February 28 Chavez was abruptly reassigned without due process and Guerra was waiting in the wings. Both events were running wild simultaneously through text messages. As a matter of fact, he was waiting to go into the HR office when they finished off Chavez. So they had a perfect set up until the secret document came along. Chavez took the field at every game giving 110% and with the determination to come out with a win. What makes these lying bastards think he will do anything less now? He’s no liar and certainly not a coward.

Anonymous said...

I second that! Chavez gave 200% everyday to the kids of Brownsville. Worked above and beyond for the athletics program. Brownsville athletics would not be where it is without Chavez. Shame on SA, Dr.M, and the 4 board members who think they can run all over people...Their time is coming and payback can be ugly!!!! Hope they get what they deserve and more...

Anonymous said...

The job Mr. Guerra "always wanted" was to keep his position as assistant superintendent of operations. He is a former superintendent and he came to this district to be an Asst. sup. Why would he now want to be an AD? He knows his days are numbered there. It will be a matter of time before he is reassigned again. He is not liked on the 3rd floor because he fights back! If you all haven't noticed, people in BISD float in and out of positions on a daily basis. Sharon Moore was just reassigned from special services to oversee one grant at the same level of pay. Mr. Guerra will not quit until he is heard publicly by the board. He is an honest and fair man..and since when anything that is said in our newspapers is the accurate reporting? They suck at writing articles!!!

We were originally told that the school would be a MED HI with all of the extracurricular activities that every other high school has. But when we went to the meeting, we were told that we would only have time to do extracurricular activities for our first two years and then we would have to quit as we would be too busy to be able to participate in band or sports. I should have known BISD was F.O.S. Monday I take her out of the STAMP program and go with the original plan of having her attend Med Hi. Way to fail us again BISD.

I am familiar with the Porter High School of Technology and the Hanna Tech Med Program, both of which were great programs in their own right. I am afraid that in BSid's attempt to cover up the mistake they made in over estimating the number of high schoolers that would be coming to BSid and building an expensive new high school that was not really needed now. The STAMP program is doomed to fail with the people that are running it. Hanna and Porter both had good programs and these bunch of Yahoos will most likely screw both up.

I have no idea why someone at the meeting on Saturday told you that you kiddo would not be able to compete in UIL or play in the band because they would be to busy, that is just so stupid. Whoever told you that should be busy looking for another job.

There have been many false statements about how STAMP was going to be run and what opportunities the students would have and how they would benefit. They made promises to students and their parents that they cannot keep. I would be very cautious before enrolling my child there not knowing how it will really be run and what the plans are for its future. It it highly likely that ALL extracurricular activities will be non-existent there. Once again, it is NOT "all all about the kids." What a shame and waste of $$$ that were put into the facilities for fine arts and athletics AND most importantly for special needs students. Another administrative blunder.

Is it possible to request BISD records regarding attorney fees paid to date? If so, can details of those charges be acquired? I'll bet Michel was on a plane headed to Brown-town this weekend to deal with their most recent screw up.

I agree that this school was not needed but people's pockets needed to be lined so they built it. They knew we did'nt have the population for this enormous pink elephant but everyone looked the other way.
Building more schools will not make us more intelligent--it just shows how ignorant BISD is.

Start spreading the word in Mexico and maybe they will help fill it up at our expense of course.



GREAT WORK TO ALL THE CORRUPT WHO DECIDED TO BUILD THIS WONDER!!!!!

Is it just me or does it seem that people that have not been with this district very long are the ones jumping to sue?

I guess they hear how easy it is to get rich in these here woods full of morons who are eager to squander taxpayer's money.

Well I guess if RATA CATA can sue and then become president of BISD anything is possible here.

Building Veterans is one of the few intelligent things BISD has done.

Your argument is wait until you have overcrowding and money and land are expensive - then build

No planning is an important part of leadership. Now that Morrison road is open there will be a large population shift - Veterans will be full faster than anyone can realize -

Only incompetent leaders wait for a crisis before they build

BISD borrowed the money in a way which saved the taxpayers a forture and is now ready to receive the population shift which is about to happen over near Morrison

You know what dude - you should be president of world economic futures - you seem to have know the economy was going to collapse under Bush II. Hd the economy not collapsed Veterans may very well already be full.

Had we not buuilt veterans and the economy not collapsed we would be faced with overcrowding and no grant money to help build the new school

Well, remember this my fellow community members. STAMP program is the dream and love of Cata Presas-Garcia amd Dr. Sylvia Atkinson. They are taking all the credit for its creation. So what can you expect??? We will see.....

My head is spinning...the forensically false audit, directed by CPG who blantantly lies that she had a relationship with Defenbaugh, the gestapo tactics of Sylvia Atkinson in carrying out countless unjustified reassignments, the Guerra threat and pay-off, the Escobedo brothers contract rigging, the hiring of Charlie A over degreed, certified teacher/coaches, the list goes on and on. Where will this all end? With a DA who turns the other way on this obvious corruption and yet asks us to vote for him for congress, a local FBI office that DOES NOTHING and now a bought and paid BISD "law enforcement" head who is under the protection of the $4, what will happen? Nothing? Are all these efforts an exercise in futility? Will there be any justice for those who have been wronged? What about the kids? Parents, are you going to do something? Teachers are you going to do someting?

Everyone rants and raves.This is a good page to vent. Yes, we are all scared of retaliation but would be sooo happy if something actually happens to these corrupt people. That is why all posts are anonymous. Other depts. not mentioned should also be investigated. You would think that with all these comments someone with political/law enforcement clout would say "Hey, I think there really is something wrong at BISD" I, and I'm sure lots of others, really thank you Bobby for everything you have uncovered so far.

Agree wutg 8:39 PM, but this is more than a place to vent. Brownsville Voice puts the facts out there and documentation to support the facts. Even if they are anonymous, it means people are finally taking an active interest in the injustices being done and the corrupt acts of the $4. Out of some of these rants and raves more information is forthcoming. Yes, a great many are very thankful for Bobby and his tireless efforts.

So can the other local MORDIDA bloggers.

Thank you ,Bobby.
