The Hays County Commissioners Court will meet next Thursday, Aug. 27, at 9 a.m. specifically to discuss the appointment for a new county court at law judge to replace the late Howard Warner. The court has expressed a desire to make an appointment before the end of the month.
The commissioners could take action on selecting an interim judge to replace Warner, who died on July 18 from cancer. The appointment would fill Warner’s remaining term, which expires with the November 2010 election.
Hays County Judge Liz Sumter (D-Wimberley) has thrown her support behind former Hays County Democratic Party chair Anna Martinez Boling, pressing for her last week. Others who are reported to have expressed interest in the position are San Marcos attorney Tacie Zelhart, San Marcos attorney Jim Pape and an assistant attorney general for the state, Scott Glicker, who lives in Buda.
Zelhart reportedly has announced her candidacy in the 2010 election, as have Assistant District Attorney David Mendoza and San Marcos attorney Robert Hargrove.Email | Print
