Mayoral candidate David Saucedo has distanced himself from the controversy stating that during his tenure they had "an amazing record-breaking golf tournament" and that he "left the Club ready for success" when asked about the controversy might have some more explaining to do.
This is a copy of the organization's 990 form from 2014 and is the most recent public record available for the organizations finances. I've highlighted line 19.
Here is a closer look at that particular section:
As this document clearly indicates, the organization was already having severe financial problems going back to 2014, running into debt of over $137,000 in one year and over $30,000 in another.
Mr. Saucedo indicated that he has been a member of the Board at the Boys & Girls Club for previous decade prior to his resignation to run for mayor of El Paso, so this was most certainly under Mr. Saucedo's watch.
Saucedo alleges in an interview previously posted on this blog, along with his paid staffers, that the controversy is "a political hit" orchestrated by members of the Foundation Board, which is a separate entity than the Boys & Girls Club, and points to donations from Foundation Board members to the Dee Margo mayoral campaign.
