Breaking News, Tue, Nov 5:
SAN ANTONIO — During a marathon meeting Tuesday, Bexar County commissioners opted to help fund a downtown medical school, redraw precinct boundaries for justices of the peace and constables and start the process to appoint two part-time justices of the peace and one full-time judge to replace one seeking a higher office.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to change the shape of its four justice of the peace and constable precincts and to set a timetable to fill vacancies caused by the redistricting. Initially, Pct. 4 Commissioner Tommy Adkisson abstained from voting on the changes — which commissioners have been mulling for months and will take effect at midnight Friday — but he changed his mind during discussion.
“There’s just no time, here, to vet this properly, so I haven’t voted on any of these,” he said. “I wish we had more time. For the record, I vote ‘no.’”
The boundaries will now mimic commissioners precincts, which are redistricted based on the U.S. Census every 10 years. Eventually, each will have one full-time and one part-time judge, but one precinct will have two full-time judges until 2016.
Of the existing five full-time and one part-time judges, three will complete their terms in a different precinct from the one they were elected to serve. Pct. 1 Judge Monica Lisa Caballero will now serve in Precinct 2, which will have two full-time judges until her term ends in three years.
