SAN ANTONIO -

The Bexar County Commissioners Court announced Tuesday the appointment of two new judges.

Jack Price, a retired teacher and physical education coach was appointed Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1, Place 2. He says his passion for his community is the motivating factor in seeking the position.

“Jack’s experience as an educator and lifelong resident of the precinct makes him the best person for the job right now,” said Commissioner Sergio “Chico” Rodriguez. “This position involves a lot of work with truant students who can use a nudge onto the right path to success.”

Local attorney Tina Torres was appointed to the County Court-at-Law No. 10 seat being vacated by Judge Irene Rios. Torres told the court she has spent her entire practice working on every type of civil matter the county court hears.

“Tina brings 17 years of experience in civil litigation and is very much in touch with that aspect of the law,” County Judge Nelson Wolff said. “She will make an excellent judge.”
