In his own words - Wolff, Nelson

Nelson William Wolff, a native of San Antonio, received his law degree from St. Mary's University and has served as Bexar County Judge from 2001-present.  His career has led him down a varied political path, holding positions in the Texas House of Representatives (1971–1973), Texas State Senate (1973-1975), San Antonio City Council (1987–1991) and as Mayor of San Antonio (1991–1995).

Wolff is a major supporter of the technology industry and was instrumental in the development of BiblioTech, the nation’s first all-digital library.  An advocate of libraries and books, he has been published several times including such titles as: Bexar BiblioTech: The Evolution of the Country's First All Digital Public Library (2015) and the latest, The Changing Face of San Antonio: An Insider’s View of an Emerging International City (2018).
