CALEXICO — This city's Housing Authority board of commissioners hired the administration's senior mechanic, Peter Castro, to replace Humberto Celaya as the administration's interim executive director.
Celaya lasted one week as interim director.
The former program coordinator for the administration's transitional housing program was hired April 11 to replace interim Executive Director Christina Rojas, who resigned after board commissioners raised a stink about a trip she took to Las Vegas for training. At that meeting board Chairman Jesus "Chuy" Solano resigned, claiming he was tired of the "nonsense."
Celaya was replaced at a special meeting Monday after commissioners found Thursday that he was a resident of the housing projects he was administering. Some commissioners said Celaya's situation was a conflict of interest, according to commissioner Daniel Santillan.
