McALLEN — Yajaira Flores, who left the City of McAllen in 2017 to run marketing for H-E-B Park and Bert Ogden Arena, will return to McAllen in one of the city’s most prominent positions: convention center director. Flores will take over for her former boss at the convention center, Omar Rodriguez, who agreed to resign in March after city leadership was not pleased with his performance.

Rodriguez also oversaw the Performing Arts Center next door, which opened in late 2016. Flores will be in charge of the PAC in addition to her duties for the center.

Flores will start with the city Sept. 4.
