Chew Cruises to Victory

Pat Chew speaks with guests during her election party

Patricia Chew, a Newman Park resident and Association member, easily won her bid to become the next Judge of Probate Court #1. She garnered the overwhelming support of 55% of the electorate.

Pat had won wide-spread endorsements including 71% of her fellow attorneys who were polled by the El Paso Bar Association.

Her sister, Linda, also a Newmanista, ran unopposed and will continue serving as Judge of the 327th District Court.

Neither Pat nor Linda face opposition in the November general election.

Also winning her election easily was our neighbor and current County Commissioner: Veronica Escobar. She won 54% of the vote and will face Jaime Perez in the general election in November for County Judge.
