|Former City Commissioner Estela Chavez-Vasquez|
Based on what we saw in Estela Chavez-Vasquez's brief tenure as City Commissioner, what we have observed about the nature of her law practice, we're inclined to report that she's not qualified to be County Court-At-Law Judge 5 or any other judge position.
Make no mistake, Estela is not a piece of shit, corrupt politico like Gilberto Hinojosa. She is, in our estimation a good, young mother. We observed her perform on the BCIC board, while monitoring her well-behaved children. We're also impressed with her personable, supportive husband, an optometrist.
But, in her tenure on the City Commission, Mrs. Vasquez was overwhelmed. Even when she finally started to ask questions, she did not always understand the answers well enough to press the issue.
Her law career is essentially limited to serving as an ad litem in family court cases, typically representing a child in the foster care system. Her law office, a remodeled older house, sits directly across the parking lot from family court in Brownsville. Someone had a brilliant income-producing plan.
Just below this article is a brief video resume' for Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, Estela's opponent in the County Court-At-Law Position 5 Judge race.
