Bernardo de la Garza Herrera was the head of the national sports commission (CONADE) until the end of November 2012.

On February 10, 2012, Bernardo de la Garza Herrera (identified on the deed as Bernardo de la Garza) and Carlos Juan de la Garza Herrera (identified on the deed as Carlos Juan de la Garza) paid $725,000 to buy 2065 West Gore Creek Drive #9 in Vail, Colorado from Carlos de la Garza Mijares (identified on the deed as Carlos de la Garza).  ChedrauiLeaks was unable to find any loans recorded with Eagle County for the purchase, and we believe that the purchase is what is known as a “cash purchase.”

Signature of Carlos de la Garza (whose full name is Carlos de la Garza Mijares) on the February deed.

On May 8, 2012, Carlos Juan de la Garza signed a quit claim deed that made Bernardo de la Garza the sole owner of the condominium.  No documentary fee was recorded on the quit claim deed, and no documentary fee would have been due under Colorado law if the price was $500 or lower (C.R.S. 39-13-102 and 104).

The condo unit was valued at $940,620 for tax purposes as of Dec. 5, 2017.

Bernardo de la Garza Herrera was a Mexican Ecologist Green Party (PVEM) representative for Yucatan in the federal Chamber of Deputies from 2000-2003.  In 2006 he was briefly the PVEM presidential candidate before the party formed an alliance with the PRI.  Bernardo de la Garza Herrera joined the Felipe Calderon administration in 2008 as head of the Presidential Special Projects Coordination Unit.  In 2009 Calderon appointed him head of the Mexican national sports commission (CONADE).

Documents has noticed that the media in Mexico contains very little information about the business dealings and personal assets in the United States of what could be termed Mexican elites, wealthy business people and politicians.  ChedrauiLeaks is not stating that members of the Chedraui family or its businesses had any involvement with 2065 West Gore Creek Drive #9 in Vail.
