State Hispanic and Latino Affairs director fired

January 6, 2010

The state’s top agency for Latinos no longer has an executive director. Pat Sanchez was let go earlier this week from his job heading up the Indiana Commission on Hispanic and Latino Affairs. The group reviews programs, conducts research and follows legislation that affects the state’s Latino population. It's not clear why the former Indianapolis Public Schools teacher was fired. Sanchez was the agency's third executive director since 2003.
