Mr. Gandara, con mi respetos. But Soco does not need to know about what you do for your family. But if the city of Socorro could get you to to stop Jesse Gandara from bringing bad press to the city of Socorro, it would be a big help. He has got the sheriff of El Paso county upset with Jesse and his camera. Jesse you have already disgraced yourself and Socorro enough with your silly little camera. Jesse you should of never been one of the first ones to get the new drive way ese. You brought this on to yourself. You should be ashamed of yourself Jesse for disrespecting the residents of Soco.

I wonder who he paid off to get his driveway done first? Who did he bribe or how much of a bribe did he accept? Where are the FBI when you need them?

Jesse Sr was your lawyer who socorro is paying 100,000 dollars at the bridal shower? You shouold stop with the holier than thou attitude, remember why you had to leave fabens, nobody there recognizes you unless your pants are around your ankles. Your son is taking after you with his arrogance and disreguard for the law. When all this this hits the fan and it will, you and your lawyers will be dragged into this. Didn't your house on haney rd. recieve a driveway too, what a coincindence. Do the people of socorro a favor and take your brat son to chula vista and keep him there, maybe with your influence you can get him a job, cause nobody here wants to hire him. Can you blame us.

Puro Soco Loco you must know by now that gandara blood runs in little and big jessie body. One could say that big jessie at first tried to be a good guy but for the greed of money and power the gandara blood took over. Unlike the other gandaras jessie sr could pass as a good guy because of his looks but deep in the him runs gandara blood. little jessie is just like his father a liar and a cheater. They are both abscessed with power and money. Well lets see jessie sr stated "people who work with me and know me and my record best can confirm that no amount of personal relationship ever has, or ever will prevent me from making decisions in the absolutely best interest of the Sweetwater Union High School District" sounds like what he said to Socorro and Fabens ISD. But after getting caught with his pants down people new him as liar and cheater. That is why he left town. People of Sweetwater Union High School District should be informed that he is a big liar and a big cheater. If he claims to have chosen a far different and more personal leadership style and says that no amount of personal relationship can prevent him from making decision in the best interest of Sweetwater Union High ISD then why did he only invite 2 of the numerous venders and service providers? Read the signs of a liar and cheater. Frankly I am baffled that such an educated man can become such a big liar and cheater and supports his uneducated son for doing the same to include beating the wife.

Would love to know how we in Chula Vista can confirm the 'pants down around the ankles comment'. Would love to be able to ship Gandara Sr. back to Texas - he is robbing our kids blind, and all the while carrying a rosary in his hand. I too am Catholic and find great offense to any individual posing as a holier than thou individual, when in fact they are a snake in the grass.

He has done so much harm - I do not know how he sleeps at night.

Lets see jesse sr left fabens cause he was caught with his pants around his ankles with the school librarian, then there was the teacher scandle with soto. Now he makes all the people who have anything to do with the school district put money on his daughters money tree, then here comes jesse jr a chip off the old mans block. He marries a 16 year old and then it is rumored that he beats her, and his kids what a class act. Now he is being investigated for stealing from our city. And he is claiming that he was hurt by a sheriffs investigator, what a wuss. He is also being investigated for sexual harassment. This piece of human excrement has to go, and the sooner the better. And thanks to the city worker who finally put his job on the line to show what a crook jesse is.
How can the incidents in Fabens be confirmed? He has also brought Soto to California and bled at least $73,000 from our students. Please provide more info the librarian scandal and the soto/teacher scandal. California are taking him to task and we are going to expose him for the fraud that he is.

Everybody understands that this was at a minimum unethical except for Mr. Gandara. Maybe he thinks he is Jesus (Gee zus) instead of Jesus (Hey zus)

How did manny [cyclops] soto rip off the school district with his buddy jesse sr. He has a 145,000 job with the city of socorro with his son at the helm. Go to www.elpasotimes.com and check out all the gandara stories that we have going on here in socorro tx.

Texas DOES NOT want this hypocrite, he is a liar and a cheater. If you did not know about it then ask him now and then if he is still around ask him again at his annual evaluation or contract renewal. Do not keep this punk of a human being. Send him packing but not back to texas, maybe to an arab country. I hear cheaters are welcomne there.

Question is how did an elementary principle become the superintendent? Why did David Sabalsqui from the FISD board use his power to change the job requirements for jessie sr? Just request minutes for 1992 or 1994 when he was hired. Now you know that Jessie does not work alone. If he really cared for the children why didnít he reinvest some of the $250,000 he gets paid on meals since the schools are short of money? Maybe if you check his credit card you might see which board members he feeds the most. Then you can clean house not only by getting rid of gandara but the big problem itself. Corruption lies on the board that allows those they hire to be corrupted.

What are the details on the "Pants around the ankles" Can't find anything in the newspapers or on the school website. Online documents don't go that far back.
We did pull his credit cards and I must say you know your Gandara!

All I know that she was Mexican and David Sablasqui knows who she is because he knows everything since he changed the job requirements to get jessie sr the job of superintendent. Even Blanca Pena can fill you in since she and David are related. Blanca a strong supporter for little jessie and chuy Hernandez who is to fill the vacant position for District 1 in the City of Socorro. As for his involvement you might say he got his other brother set with about 5 new vans with the money they got from the philipino teachers but Mario Aguilar would be the one to go to for more information. Look at the Court Records under Mario Aguilar and his wife (Magdalena Aguilar). Also look in the court records for Juan Canales who was part of the phillipino Teahers scandal. Better yet try to get Titio Lujans number he to know everything. Tito sits on the Civil Service Commission for the City of Socorro.

he didn't pay anybody off, HE chose who was going to get the driveways. He just got arrogant and decided he and his family and friends would get a longer driveway at taxpayers expense. that is why he didn't want the sheriff measuring his driveway. he is trying to throw off the people by saying the detective hurt his hand. what a sissy.
Wrongful Accusations

These allegations are all rumors and completely are without merit.
The Gandara family has served the public & community for many years now. I hope our community will take the time to seek valid information and consider the danger of ignoring the success the Gandara's have achieved and the positive direction we are headed toward. Don't let sensationalism cloud your vision or sway your ideals!!!!

Rumors about Jesus Gandara's affair with a librarian are completely FALSE. He has been happily married for 33 years - these allegations are ridiculous. What did our parents tell us about believing rumors?? Come on folks, maybe some of us didn't get the memo.
