Voters welcome return of county commissioner, elect new JP

(Guadalupe County) -- Guadalupe County voters in Precinct 4 are again choosing Judy Cope to represent them on the Guadalupe County Commissioners Court. Cope cruised to victory over Democrat Rebecca
Tucker during Tuesday's general election.

Cope, who had a hard fought battle during the GOP primary in the spring, had an easier time defeating Tucker. Cope says she's had to spend a lot of time campaigning this year, but she says it's all been
worth it.

"Well, it's been a long year of campaigning, but I want to thank the good Lord for allowing me to again represent the people of Guadalupe County. (I want to thank) all of my supporters, and all of those
people who got out there and voted to support me all these years. I also want to thank my family, especially my daughter, who is the one that gets out there and helps me get these signs up and down this
year. It's been kind of a long year, but a really good year. I always enjoy getting out and seeing everyone, and being able to do my best to represent their best interest," said Cope.

Cope is a long time member of the Guadalupe County Commissioners Court, and says there's lots more that she'd like to get accomplished during her new term. Cope received 9,679 votes, while Tucker received
5,108. Cope's new term officials starts on January 1, 2019.
In other results from Tuesday night, Guadalupe County voters will be welcoming a new justice of the peace in Precinct 3. Republican John Terry defeated Democratic challenger Peggy Ornelas for the position.
Terry wrapped up the election with 9,335 of the votes cast, while Ornelas trailed behind with 6,087 votes. Terry replaces retiring Justice of the Peace Roy Richard Jr.

Much like Cope, Terry's term will not begin until Jan. 1, 2019.
