Hays County Court at Law No. 1 Judge Anna Martinez Boling, appointed in August to fill the unexpired term of the late Judge Howard Warner, announced late Sunday that she has filed the paperwork to run for the position in 2010.
After a contentious process, the Hays County Commissioners Court voted, 4-1, to appoint the former Hays County Democratic Party chair to the position. Warner, who served on the law court for 26 years, died from cancer on July 18.
“It is such an honor to serve the community as Judge of the Hays County Court at Law,” Boling said. “Being Judge of this court allows me to assist members of the community who may be facing legal challenges such a young person who has made a bad choice or a neighbor who needs help resolving a conflict. It is important that our citizens know the legal system is in place to help them.”
No other candidates have announced intentions to run for the bench.
Boling has been an attorney for over 15 years, and is a Texas State alumna. She resides in San Marcos with her husband and daughter.Email | Print
With all due respects this article seems to imply that Anna is the only one running. This is far from the truth. My office mate Robert Updegrove is running as a republican and my friend David Mendoza is running against Anna in the Democratic primary..
While I feel that Robert is the best choice amongst all three for a variety of reasons not the least of which is his even judicial temperament , I hope that all three would run a clean campaign and stick to the issues.
I want to thank her for trying to help us. She was the only one to help in a very disturbing situation I had with a friend of mine. We needed a judge quickly and she was willing and ready to help and ask questions. I thank her for being available for any questions we had to ask and her respectfulness of the situation. She was willing to help us along with her staff. Again thank you. We were running out of people to talk to and help and she was the only who step up as soon as she could and do what she could.
I meant the only one to help us and the only one (to ) step up.
