The first meeting of La Joya Housing Authority since federal investigators picked through documents at both the office and the executive director's home drew sparks when one board member said they weren't doing enough to support the agency.
"Things happened over the holidays and we never sat down and discussed it," said Board Member Frances Salinas De Leon on Tuesday evening. "I didn't see any action. I didn't see anyone addressing it."
She said she tried to get in touch of Chairwoman Abby Garcia at the time, but De Leon only has Garcia’s work number. She sent an email, but said she didn't get a response until Tuesday. In the meantime, De Leon said, she called up a friend with the Bexar County Housing Authority and found out about an informal meeting Friday for area housing authority attorneys and directors to discuss issues.
