Oh and did I forget to mention the voice on the audio is that of Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen sharing information about a grand jury investigation that he is the grand jury foreman of?
Grand jury foreman Mayor Owen’s audio reference to Dr. Ives pertains to a complaint filed by former Lamar CISD Superintendent Dr. Dan Ives “who alleged a history of misconduct and conflicts of interest between Jim Gonzales, a principal of IDC, Inc., and members of the school board.”
Scroll to the 4:50 minute mark where Owen and two as-of-yet unidentified voices joke that “tomorrow, all of your indictments will be correct, filled out”—and laugh with Mayor Owen suggesting he should “fill the blanks.”
Clearly, the audio was recorded prior to this March 4, 2016 Fox 26 report of 16 indictments delivered by the grand jury with charges against Jim Gonzales and Jesse Torres, both of Richmond, and Anna Gonzales of Rosenberg.
The case stems in part from the Lamar CISD board’s selection of IDC to help oversee work on bond projects approved by voters in 2014 in the district.
