Brown retains position as county judge

Wednesday, November 9, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Travis County Judge Andy Brown handily beat his Republican challenger, Rupal Chaudhari, in his bid for reelection on Tuesday night. Brown claimed victory after early voting showed a decisive lead, with 74 percent to Chaudhari’s 26 percent. “I’m honored to have your confidence to continue serving as Travis County Judge,” Brown said on Twitter. “Voters have delivered us with a clear mandate to keep our community safe from gun violence, tackle the substance abuse crisis, and expand health care, including mental and reproductive care. As our mission continues, I will continue to work for and with all who call our county home so we can make Travis County the best place to live, build a career and grow a family.” Brown previously defeated Michael Lovins in a special general election held in November 2020.

Editor’s Note: Andy Brown is on the board of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, the parent nonprofit of the Austin Monitor.
