$200,000 Not Enough: Manuel Carrillo, Parks and Recreation Director Gets Another Raise

Parks and Recreation Director
Manuel Carrillo Jr.
$200,000 is not enough for Manuel Carrillo Jr. With benefits, that's what Transparency alleged he made in 2014. Now, he's making a lot more, but the City won't disclose how much yet. It's definitely closer to a quarter of a million.

What are Carrillo's educational qualification? He certainly didn't graduate from college. We can't even verify if he graduated high school in El Paso.

Other notable Carrillo achievements is stealing City money through sham nonprofits, selling City park space who could release it for soccer programs, hiring those who commit sexual harassment, and hiring criminals to work with children. For all this, he's going to make closer to a quarter of a million.

So why's he getting a raise? And how is the City justifying this?

Given that there was an election this year, and that it looks like the Mayor committed unprecedented election fraud, I suspect he's being rewarded for his part in it.

How did the City do it? Well, the Mayor and two council members fired the community services director. Carrillo is the new acting service director. It justifies his pay raise. The City will hire a new community services director.

Carrillo steps down. But, his raise stays the same.

Folks, let's not forget this is the same man who fired a boxing coach who worked there for 20 years, and complained that $8.40 an hour was not a fair raise. So, Carrillo gave hime a 40 cent raise.

As Orwell said: "The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which."
