Hays County Court at Law No. 1 Judge Anna Martinez Boling has filed for election to the bench she was appointed to fill following Howard S. Warner II’s death in June.
_Boling, a San Marcos Democrat, faces Assistant District Attorney David A. Mendoza, also a San Marcos Democrat, in their party’s March 2 primary. San Marcos attorney Robert Updegrove is running for the court seat as a Republican.
“It is such an honor to serve the community as Judge of the Hays County Court at Law. 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,” Boling said in a written statement.
Until her appointment by the Hays County Commissioners Court in August to fill Warner’s unexpired term, Boling practice law in San Marcos, a firm she founded in 1998.
The Hays County Commissioners Court appointed Boling to serve out Warner’s term until the November election. She was an El Paso County Assistant District Attorney from 1996 to 1998 and practiced law in Seguin between 1995 and 1996.
