Field to become the next Bexar County judge narrows

“I’ve dealt with issues that come before the state, that are going to come before the county,” she said. “Like economic development, like infrastructure, transportation, Health and Human Services, health care, and I felt ... this is an opportunity that doesn’t come every day. I decided to take a leap of faith, I felt that I could come home and be more effective here and lead a Bexar County,” Minjarez said.

Minjarez touted her experience as a state lawmaker — specifically, securing more than $1 billion in funding for the area in her role on the State House Appropriations Committee. She told TPR she looks forward to getting her name out to more of Bexar County in the runoff race.

"I think both of us are good Democrats," she told TPR. "At the end of the day, this is going to be about the issues." Minjarez said her priorities include property tax relief and safe neighborhoods in addition to securing federal funds for Bexar County.
