County Judge Nelson W. Wolff, Bexar County Commissioners Court
Nelson William Wolff has represented Bexar County in various political offices since 1971, when he was elected to the Texas House of Representatives. After that he was elected to the Texas Senate in 1973, the San Antonio City Council in 1987 and he served as Mayor of San Antonio from 1991 to 1995. He currently serves as Bexar County Judge, a position he was appointed to in 2001 and has since been elected to four times, most recently in November 2014. He is only the second person in more than a century to serve as both Mayor of San Antonio and Bexar County Judge.
With his colleagues on the Commissioners Court and with the City of San Antonio, Judge Wolff has worked to promote improve economic and workforce development in Bexar County. He is an adamant supporter of the emerging local tech industry and thriving tech ecosystem and led the development and creation of Bibliotech, the nation’s first all-digital public library.
Judge Wolff also initiated a $415 million visitor tax-backed bond that aided the construction of 13 amateur sports facilities, the Tobin Center for the Fine Arts, improvements to the AT&T Center, and improvements to the San Antonio River. The eight-mile Mission Reach of the San Antonio River is a community investment that proved vital to the UNESCO World Heritage designation for the Spanish colonial missions on San Antonio’s South Side.
Together, Wolff and his wife Tracy, President of the Hidalgo Foundation, have six
children and seven grandchildren.
