Bexar County deserves an experienced, ethical and proven leader as District Attorney. A DA who has committed his life’s work to the justice system, who will honorably represent and protect the citizens of Bexar County, and who will prosecute crime to the full extent of the law. Bexar County deserves Tylden Shaeffer as District Attorney.
“I am the Republican candidate for DA. In these trying times of school shootings and a rising murder rate, you need a DA with true depth of experience in all areas of the criminal justice system–including violent crime, white collar, child abuse, sexual assault, in the federal and state and juvenile law systems. This community deserves a steady hand at the top–someone with the knowledge, experience, expertise, wisdom and temperament to protect all citizens of Bexar County. In these times we don’t need our chief prosecutor learning on the job. You deserve better. You want a DA with a board certification in criminal law, who’s worked in the DA’s office for 9 years and as a private defense attorney for 17 years. You deserve a DA who will make our neighborhoods safer, protect our elderly, find compassionate and common sense solutions for our veterans, and someone with the experience and wisdom to effectively find better solutions for the mentally ill in the system. Vote for experience. Vote for Integrity. Vote for a DA you feel comfortable trusting.”
