The city of Donna’s former accountant is suing the South Texas town, claiming she wasn’t chosen to become city manager because she is a non-Hispanic woman.
Deborah Fischer alleges Councilwoman Irene Munoz told her that four Hispanic men on city council would never hire a non-Hispanic woman. Munoz denies having made the remarks.
Fischer worked as an accounting consultant with the city for 11 years before applying for the city manager position. She was one of seven finalists. The job went to the former emergencycoordinator for the South Texas Development Council of Governments.
Note: The competition is stiff in a tight job market. Some unsuccessful applicants may be tempted to sue, hoping the threat of litigation will at least earn them a hefty settlement.
