EDINBURG — Weeks after saying they didn’t want to make a selection to fill the vacancy for the new Hidalgo County Court-At-Law No. 7, Hidalgo County Commissioners selected McAllen lawyer Rolando Cantu to run the not-yet established courtroom.
Dozens of people attended Tuesday’s Commissioners’ Court to offer their support for their desired candidate who would fill the seat until the 2012 election cycle. County leaders said they wanted a judge who wouldn’t be seeking election for the seat to fill the vacancy until voters could decide whom they want as judge.
