Joe A Ortiz (National Civil Rights Director, American GI Forum) Writes Letter to the Caller Times (and it got published)

Should step down

We know that Del Mar College President Carlos Garcia is responsible to the Board of Regents. However, President Garcia should be more responsible to the public. His actions are compromising education at Del Mar.

Del Mar President Garcia should relinquish his position until the present investigation is completed.

The board is doing a disservice to the public by keeping Del Mar President Garcia as president while there is a cloud of suspicion and his integrity is being questioned and investigated.

Verdict: Trustee of scholarship foundation didn’t besmirch VP of finance
The vice president of finance for Del Mar College could not convince a Nueces County jury that a scholarship foundation trustee defamed him. At a board of regents meeting, Gaylord Hoyt said Joe L. Alaniz misstated where the interest from scholarship funds had been going and then after the meeting, wrote Del Mar’s president and told him that Alaniz was skimming it off the top. Alaniz sued for libel and slander and Hoyt argued that he did not mean to imply that Alaniz was pocketing it, he just wanted documentation of what accounts Alaniz was putting the interest in. The jury rendered a defense verdict on Oct. 21.
Alaniz v. Hoyt

NUECES COUNTY - A local construction firm is suing Nueces County over the way the county handled contract negotiations for the Heritage Park Fairgrounds in Robstown.

Fulton Coastcon and Zachry-Teal Construction companies submitted proposals to build a 140,000 square foot covered arena. At the Dec. 20 commissioner's court meeting, both proposals were supposed to be read aloud, along with the cost, and then the project committee was suppose to make their recommendation.

Fulton Coastcon representatives claim the county purchasing agent didn't allow its project cost to be read aloud. Zachry-Teal won the bid. Their cost was about $100,000 more than Fulton's.

The Secretary of State cleared her to run.

I think these guys are going to learn a lesson or two....

from the attorney general down. The Secretary of State cleared Ms Garcia to run. If you read the AG opinion you will know what a crook this guy is when it comes to the little people. Carlos Valdez, I cant see how he would obtain Jurisdiction given there is no criminal act. This matter should be processed through existing administrative law.

A Voter Registration in Kleberg While Residing in Nueces?

The question is, which home was her domicile. I have been to her Apartment here in Corpus Christi, it sure looks like it is her primary residence.

I cannot imagine Carlos Valdez even having anything to do with this case, given his history with Mike Westergren and I am told with Joe Alaniz as well.

If Carlos Valdez prosecutes this lady, he is a fool.

I stand behind her.
