Nueces County Judge Barbara Canales started her first day on the job by making the rounds at the courthouse.
Canales says she wanted to meet the people who work there and find out what their duties are.
“There’s some serious water issues this building faces, roof issues, so those are what I know about,” Canales said. “So I’m going to ask everyone (to) look very critically both inside the building and outside the building.”
Canales also settled into her new job and will begin the process of meeting the goals she has set for her first 100 days in office.
