|(Seguin) -- Voters have re-elected Guadalupe County Justice of the Peace Pct. 2 Judge Sheryl Sachtleben. Sachtleben was the top vote getter during Tuesday's March 6 Republican Primary Election. Sachtleben managed to defeat challenger Chris Aviles for the position.|
Sachtleben received 1,467 of the votes cast or 70.63 percent while Aviles received 610 votes or 29.37 percent.
Sachtleben says she is thankful to all those who took the time to come out and support her.
"Well, I have to say thanks to everybody. I didn't do it by myself, but of course, we were pretty stressed out. You campaign, you get out, you talk to everybody. You get a lot of support from people, but you just don't really know who is going to show up to vote. So just to have that voter turnout, to have that many people check my name and support me and to say that 'I can do the job,' it means a lot," said Sachtleben.
Sachtleben says she loves serving the public and is grateful for the opportunity to keep working for the people.
"I think the office is in really good shape. So I think we've spent seven years getting it really good and I think it's just business as usual. We're doing a good job. We're just going to keep on doing that job," said Sachtleben.
Sachtleben does not face a Democratic challenger during November General's Election.
