(Feb. 14, 2014) -- The UTSA College of Public Policy and the League of Women Voters of San Antonio will host a Bexar County Judge Candidate Forum at 5:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 17 in the Durango Building Southwest Room (1.124) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Free parking will be available in lot D3 under Interstate 35.

The forum will include the four candidates in the primary election for county judge. The candidates will discuss their positions and take questions from the audience.

The candidates are:

  • Tommy Adkisson (D)
  • Gerard Ponce (R)
  • Carlton Soules (R)
  • Nelson Wolff (D)

"While the league remains nonpartisan, we strongly encourage informed and active participation in government, and this event is an important part of engaging with the community to bring them access to their potential representatives," said Phyllis Ingram, League of Women Voters president.

"This is an opportunity for citizens to receive information and have their questions answered, as well as for students to take a lead role in community outreach, both of which are vital to our mission," said Francine Romero, associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy.

Student organizations including the UTSA Student Government Association, the Public Administration Student Organization (PASO) and the national criminal justice honor society, Alpha Phi Sigma, are co-sponsors of the forum and will have members on hand to participate in the event.

>> The forum prefaces early voting, which runs Tuesday, Feb. 18 through Friday, Feb. 28. The joint primary election is March 4.
