On Friday, it was announced that Lina Hidago’s indicted chief-of-staff, Alex Triantaphyllis was resigning.
Triantaphyllis was charged in connection to that $11 million COVID-19 contract controversy in March.
According to prosecutors, he was one of the three staffers who helped get Elevate Strategies the contract that was then called into question. The staffers were charged with misuse of official information, a third-degree felony, and tampering with a government record.
Hidalgo claimed the investigation “has been politically motivated.” Even though the search warrant findings have proven otherwise.
Triantaphyllis joined Hidalgo's team in 2019 and took on the role of COS in 2021.
Although Triantaphyllis will remain in his current seat until early 2023, the county said they've began a search for a replacement. At this time, it's unclear what Triantaphyllis's new position will be.
Word on the street is, Triantaphyllis is only moving to work for the newly Democrat formed County Administrators office. Which would be on brand for the County Democrats to keep their indicted employees as close as possible. Aaron Dunn, who was also indicted, was moved to the flood control department and given a pay raise. I would not be surprised if Alex ends up in a similar situation.
Let us know when he moves on to a new position at the Harris County Jail.
All these people are criminals; magnets to lawlessness. And anything to do with the scamdemic speaks volumes.
