EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – The Socorro Independent School District trustees appointed Michael Najera to fulfill an unfinished term on the school board.
Najera was appointed recently to replace Paul Garcia who resigned from his position last month.
He served on the school board between May 2009 and May 2019. He lost his seat during the general election in 2019, when Garcia was elected.
Najera was one of 15 candidates and he starts on May 12, Cynthia Najera, the SISD board president says.
KTSM 9 News has reached out to SISD for comment.
The appointment was made a day before SISD trustees were scheduled to discuss superintendent Jose Espinoza’s contract. It is unclear what they will discuss based off information on the district’s agenda.
A news release says Najera is the executive director of Client Transformation at Change Healthcare, which provides revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions in healthcare.
