The final candidate for director of the troubled Webb County Community Action Agency has been convicted of driving while intoxicated and of public intoxication.

At least two county commissioners say that could end his chances of being hired by the county.

Three (Valdez, Tijerina, and Sciaraffa) chose this man on Tuesday, after asking a ton of questions of all the finalists.  Mr. Juan Gonzalez' hiring as CAA director was contingent upon a background check and drug test.  The commissioners court now learned that he has a record.  Not good.
“This position requires a person that is … squeaky clean, and I think that’s what we’re looking for,” Valdez said.
Next up:  another special called meeting next week to choose somebody else.
