PBA Director Resigns From Post After Approving Huge Bonuses to Employees
SAN JUAN – The executive director of the Public Buildings Authority (PBA), Angel L. González Carrasquillo, has resigned from his post, effective Friday, for alleged personal and professional reasons.
However, sources from the agency told Caribbean Business that González Carrasquillo got into hot water with the central administration after authorizing huge payments in Christmas bonuses to nearly 200 managerial workers that were questioned by La Fortaleza. The PBA has a $40 million debt.
González Carrasquillo tendered his resignation about two weeks ago. In a letter sent to employees, he urged them to continue to operate as a team.
“First of all, I want to thank you for all the cooperation and confidence placed in me over the past two years. These years have been full of intense challenges and obstacles that have required a lot of effort, dedication and commitment from all those who work in the Public Buildings Authority. However, with great pride I can say that thanks to God, teamwork, commitment from all unionized, managerial and personnel in positions of trust, the work was carried out,” he said.
He added that “the actions that were started will allow the PBA to achieve economic stability and continue building and working for a better Puerto Rico for all.”
