Mexia has their own Judge Judy

By Timothy J. O’Malley

If anyone knows anything about Judy Chambers, people may think she is a prototype of family court judge Judy Sheindlinwill with her no-nonsense, wisecracking approach when it comes to business. And, everyone will say when she speaks her mind, it takes no sides, color or shape. She is always fair.
Why the comparison? Chambers was recently sworn in as Mexia’s Municipal Judge on Oct. 17.
Chambers’ journey is one guided by design, never in her mind the one she thought she would travel on. In reality, it is one more of passion that leads to the next platform to have a greater impact on society.
Chambers is a 1972 graduate of Mexia High School. In her travels she attended Paul Quinn College, Anchorage Community College and Gwinnett Technical Center, all while traveling with her military husband of 26 years. She said, “It afforded me the opportunity to travel around the country. I have lived in Illinois, Chanute AFB and Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage, Alaska, and Lilburn, Ga. I am the mother of two, Jazzmine E. Anglin and Henry V. Chambers, III (Hank), and am the proud “GG” of three grandsons, H.C., Issak and Austin and one granddaughter, Zoe.”
