Atascosa County Judge’s Report



Some people think that I am guilty of voter suppression because I recommended to Commissioners’ Court to follow the state election code and close seven Voter Precincts that qualified to be called “stranded.” I have worked tirelessly to build a system that makes it easier to vote anywhere in Atascosa County. I have expanded early voting from one location to […]

We are moving forward on the Juvenile Treatment Plan for our Juvenile Detention Center. We have hired the Clinical Director and she is working steadily on the details of the program that need to be developed before we can open the program to participants. I hope that is coming soon! The building is ready for the Public Defender Program’s attorneys […]

I am making it official. We are closing the vaccination clinic at the Poteet Strawberry Festival Association (PSFA) grounds. We distributed 19 on Monday and 35 on Tuesday. So, Tuesday was our last day out there. We put this announcement on our emergency page on Monday. We started this past Monday with the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine in hopes […]

We started the large drive-through vaccine clinic for COVID-19 I have been working so hard to make happen. The Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM) pledged 30 days of 1,000 shots per day. But, we are running well below that. We have at least 20,000 adults in the county that need the vaccine and they are not signing up. We […]

The shot we planned to use was Johnson and Johnson but on Tuesday the FDA put its use on hold pending investigations on some blood clots and strokes that occurred. Until they clear it for […]

If you took your first Moderna shot there on March 19, you should go back at the same time of the date for your second. We will be planning another event there soon after and will let you know when. I am hopeful it […]

We have one more follow-up vaccine event at the Strawberry Festival Association (SFA) grounds on April 16. We will be planning another event there soon after and will let you know when. I continue to be amazed at those folks who are saying that the COVID-19 vaccine shots are “DNA altering.” If you try to “google” the subject, you will […]

I have just learned about a Texas State “ABLE” account. This is an account where people who are limited in what they can have in savings can put money without having it count against their SSI Benefits. This is important right now because it is a place that these people can put their “stimulus” checks and not have to spend […]

I made a fast trip to Phoenix last week to go to the funeral of a good friend. That is the first time I have flown in over a year since COVID began. I had to wear mask in the airports and the entire time on the plane, which was a 2.5-hour flight. I had a mask on for over […]

We have more vaccine coming into the county for COVID-19. We will be scheduling another drive-through at the PSFA Grounds on the 19. Watch our emergency management page for announcements for sign up. We are going to see significantly more vaccine being available very soon. It is coming. The Governor announced that effective today, March 10, he is lifting all […]
