Webb County Commissioners Court chose Juan Gonzalez, former branch manager at AMP Electric Co., as the next director of the Community Action Agency on Tuesday night after several hours of interviews with five finalists for the position.
Commissioners went through a lengthy selection process before settling on somebody last night. All five couldn't agree on one person; they had to go into executive session to discuss amongst themselves. Early on Frank Sciaraffa abstained from voting on anybody, for some reason. For that reason commissioners encountered a deadlock.
