Half of Texas Child Protective Services' 10 regional directors are fired or retire

AUSTIN Half of the 10 people who run Texas Child Protective Services' regional offices have been fired or have retired, an agency spokesman confirmed Tuesday.

George Cannata, who runs the North Texas or Region 3 office in Arlington, will keep the director job he was given last spring.

But five others will be replaced, including one in far West Texas who chose to retire rather than reapply for her job and be re-evaluated, CPS spokesman Patrick Crimmins said.

1. Good.

Horribly managed agency.

Under staffed, no budget, no accountability.
