According to this story in the El Paso Times, County Commissioner David Stout has nominated former City of El Paso Chief Financial Officer Carmen Arrieta-Candelaria to the University Medical Center Board of Managers.
Really, Commissioner Stout?
Ms. Arrieta-Candelaria was CFO when the City decided to delay the sale of bonds to fund the ballpark, resulting in the loss of $22 million.
Now I realize that $22 million is small potatoes to the County Commissioners Court. They wish they lost $22 million, instead of the $600 million they lost on the Children’s Hospital. Hell, losing $22 million is a good day for the Commissioners Court.
But I think, before we give Ms. Arrieta-Candelaria any more public appointments, she’s got some ‘splaining to do.
