“As your new County Judge, I am making it a priority to help businesses grow, expand infrastructure to meet the needs of our residents, bridge the digital divide by increasing internet access, improve conditions at the jail and engage the community to give you a voice in Bexar County government. Together we can make Bexar County an even better place to live and work,” he said in the release.

Sakai took over for Nelson Wolff, who served as Bexar County Judge for more than 20 years.
