State Representative Ina Minjarez announces she is running for Bexar County Judge
SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Another Democrat is entering the race to replace Nelson Wolff as Bexar County Judge.
State Representative Ina Minjarez, who represents House District 124, released a video Monday announcing her intention to run to become the top elected official in Bexar County.
In the video, she talks up her work to bring over 1 billion dollars in funding for education, infrastructure and economic growth programs for veterans and businesses.
Minjarez says she will finish out her term in the Texas House.
