CANDIDATES' FORUM: Luz Elena Chapa, Democrat
■ 4th Court of Appeals, Pl. 4
I was raised in El Paso, Texas, and I currently live in San Antonio. I have practiced civil litigation for 12 years on both sides of the docket in counties across Texas. My husband of 10 years is Miguel Chapa, and we have two daughters, Luz Elena, 7, and Natalia, 5. This is the first time I have run for office. I am a Democrat.
I am running for my daughters. I want to set a good example for them and for young women to aim high and work hard. Secondly, I want to offer the voters a real, qualified, and respectful choice. I want the folks from Wilson County to know I will serve and represent them well and make them proud. I will always maintain a high level of respect and integrity, and I will never abuse the office. I am not a career politician, but I do hope to become your public servant.
I plan to work hard and strictly follow the law. I will restore respect, integrity, and strong work ethic to Place 4 on the Fourth Court of Appeals.
