I am currently working on a story coming out of the Montebello Unified School District.
The district rehired David Miranda – a former employee with four drunken driving convictions – as an employment specialist for the district on Thursday.
Miranda is the nephew of Montebello Councilmember Rosie Vasquez.
The school board approved the re-hire which is a bit unusual for them to vote on a non-certificated position. They typically vote on certified positions such as teachers and administrators. This leaves some to believe that the re-hiring of Miranda might not be welcomed by everyone at the district.
Miranda is currently serving a four year probation which includes having his drivers license suspended for two years, serving 15 days in county jail, and serving 18 months in an alcohol rehabilitation program.
