Webb County commissioners withdrew their job offer to would-be Community Action Agency director Juan Gonzalez on Monday and, in an unexpected move, indicated they want to hire Juan Vargas, director of the county’s economic development department, to head the beleaguered CAA.

Where are we on this drama?
  • Last CAA director fired
  • Management team assembled to help put CAA back together
  • Commissioners court narrows field of applicants down to five
  • Court wants management team to pick recommend new director
  • Team declines; would rather start interview process all over again
  • Court decides to pick somebody at last
  • Waits for background check and drug test
  • DWI charge pops up for applicant
  • Court takes back the pick
  • Court now favors person on management team; earns more than CAA position pays
Cue "Yakkity Sax."
