Garland Soccer Lawsuit Successful David Arciniega Ousted!

Garland Soccer Lawsuit Successful David Arciniega Ousted!

David Arciniega received 10 votes. Rachel Beltran took the president’s seat with 20 votes.

Treasurer, Sam Perry, withdrew his name from the ballot. Jesse Flores was voted in from the floor.

A newer member, Laura, successfully defeated Erick Quintana for the position of Publicity and Awards Director. Erick Quintana signed a No Confidence Petition against me because I supported a more qualified candidate opposing David Arciniega for president in 2013. I have filed complaints about this blatant harassment and election tampering that have yet to be heard. I expect Erick Quintana to be suspended from all soccer activities due to this. I passed out copies of the egregious petition filed against me and spoke out in support of free and fair elections going forward at the meeting.

The positions of Facility and Equipment Director and Special Events and Training Director went unfilled as Don Starkey had announced his departure at the beginning of the season, and Terry Walser withdrew his name from the ballot at the election.

Rosemary Martinez, who provided excellent customer service for years, has left. Gayle Brandt is also leaving.

The settlement announcement was shared with the coaches:
Announcement
Heather Dobrott and the Garland Soccer Association and David Arciniega announce that all matters in controversy between them in the lawsuit filed by Dobrott against the Association and Arciniega have been compromised and settled. No payment of damages was made to Dobrott as that was not the purpose of her lawsuit. Further, Dobrott did not receive full reimbursement of her attorneys’ fees incurred as part of the lawsuit. As part of the settlement, a contribution to the Garland Soccer Association Scholarship Fund will be made in Dobrott’s name. The parties have agreed in their settlement to confer and discuss the issues raised by Dobrott in the lawsuit and to work together toward a betterment of the Garland Soccer Association and the children it serves.

I have been in contact with USSF’s legal department and will file a national grievance against any administrators and/or NTSSA if the issues I have raised are not fully investigated, heard and handled as the by-laws dictate. I will continue to work tirelessly until there is transparency and full accountability in North Texas State Soccer.

It is imperative that all member associations do their due diligence on all prospective candidates for the North Texas State Soccer Association board and see that David Arciniega, Larry Hall and the others who have been wreaking havoc are voted out. It is high time NTSSA follow its own by-laws and handles grievances and appeals promptly instead of sweeping them under the rug.

All but 2 board members were corrupt and have been voted out or quit as of last week thanks to Soapboxmom going out of her way to make sure that the facts were known of the fraud, racism, and corruption at Garland Soccer Association.

Many think of youth sports as being a sanctuary whereas fraud, racism and corruption cannot penetrate, but they often reflect what is actually going on in our society. There seems to be a broad agreement among many parents and Coaches that report this kind of activity as it is increasing at an alarming rate but never dealt with and the accused continue until someone is hurt and usually it is the kids.

All elected Board members are critical to not only the safety of our kids, but the future of our soccer community and they earn the Coaches trust and confidence to not only run in the elections but to continue to hold the position that they have been voted in to perform. Each Board Member should be held accountable to their designated area and successful major milestones one after another. The process of navigating through last-minute changes and requirements, undocumented processes, aging technology, child safety and free from any form of corruption must be addressed and eliminated immediately. Each Board member should successfully execute and solidify their understanding and execution of the bylaws and procedures highlighting opportunities for improvement to the organization and mitigate all risks of corruption, theft, prejudice and discrimination to any and all members relative to any Soccer Association.

The parents, Coaches and players have had enough and each of those individuals were voted out this last week in the election. Now we can rebuild GSA back to the organization that it once was, when it was all about the kids. Hope to see each and every one of you at future elections to participate in eliminating youth sports corruption vs ridiculing someone who did stand up and fight for the kids.
