Email from Henry Amigable to Jeff Flores, dated May 22, 2009
The district attorney’s office raided two more homes March 22 in connection with the South County school district’s scandal. Affidavits, signed by district attorney investigator Vincent Giame, provided the basis for searching the homes of former Southwestern trustees Yolanda Salcido and Jorge Dominguez.
The affidavits released on March 29 once again provide accounts of so much “wining and dining” that some people in South County profess to losing their appetite for scandal. One email, excerpted from the recent affidavits, suffices to remind that the meals and the intrigue is far from over.
The email is written from Henry Amigable to Jeff Flores. Amigable was the program manager for Sweetwater’s Proposition O construction and then the program manager for Southwestern College’s Proposition R construction. Flores was the CEO for Seville Construction Services, Amigable’s employer, and the program management company for Southwestern.
The email not only mentions Southwestern’s former president, Raj Chopra, it also calls attention to the interweaving between Sweetwater Union High School District and Southwestern College. Jorge (or George) Dominquez was a former Sweetwater employee and a former Southwestern trustee. Greg Sandoval was a former Southwestern College employee and a former Sweetwater trustee.
It is important to note that this email was sent four months before Southwestern even put out a request for proposal for a program manager.
