EL PASO- On Wednesday, a former associate superintendent of the El Paso Independent School District pleaded guilty to federal bribery charges.

Tomas Gabaldon admits he accepted money and property in exchange for handing out vendor contracts 2003 through 2005.

The US Government says EPISD lost almost $3,000,000 of tax payer money because of Gabaldon's crime.

He works now for Albuquerque Public Schools, but he'll be sentenced in El Paso on February 29th.  He faces up to 20 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.

I would like to know what Truth is Mr. Gabaldon suppose to tell in all this

When is the trial coming up it would be nice to see these people brought to justice

This company, Strategic Governmental Solutions was the comopany that sued my wife and I for slander because I had said publicly that the company was raping the EPISD taxpayers.

Nothing ever came of the suit except bills but we were right about the charges!

Howard DeLaCruz-Bancroft worked with Dan Weaver former EPISD school board president since 2003 on this issue. They presented evidence to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office.

Charles Tafoya the former superintendant during this time period is still at large.

My hope is that Mr. Gabaldon tells the truth and Mr. Tafoya is also revealed for the part he played in stealing from taxpayers and destroying the public's confidence in public officials.
