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.
“Our community deserves a leader with trial experience on both sides of the courtroom. I’ve spent the last 27 years representing the people of Bexar County as both a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, and I can ensure you a measured, fair and effective office for my fellow citizens. I know the needs of our area; I was raised here, and after college, I came home to serve my community and raise my family. I worked in the DA’s office, and I know how to move cases through our legal system while upholding the law. Rest assured I will investigate and prosecute crime to the full extent of the law. The people of Bexar County expect high standards in the District Attorney’s office, and I will exceed those expectations.”
