Managing Editor

The embattled administrator of the San Benito CISD on-site health clinic fired back days after the Board of Trustees unanimously voted to part ways with him.

Richard Garza, owner of ISD Managed Care Services and provider of on-site health care for the school district’s employees, submitted a 60-day written notice on Thursday informing SBCISD Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ismael Cantu of his resignation. Such action came after the Board voted unanimously during a special Wednesday to provide ISD Managed Care with a 60-day written termination notice.

At the meeting, trustees including Board President Yliana González, Secretary June Aguilera, Oscar Medrano and Anna Cruz expressed concern with an Internal Revenue Service lien in excess of $315,000 that was placed on the district’s future payments to Garza.
