CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Judge Missy Medary was one of a handful of local candidates sworn in on Tuesday at the Nueces County Courthouse.

Federal Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos swore in Medary for her first full term as the 347th District Judge. Medary had been appointed to the job by Governor Perry after Judge Ramos left the position to move up to the federal level.

Medary said she is excited about the next four years.

"You know, for the next four years I'm going to continue to do what I've done for the last 16 months, since being appointed to this position, which is to represent the citizens of Nueces County to the best of my abilities," Medary said.

The swearing in ceremony took place inside of the central jury room at the courthouse. There will be a number of other officials sworn into office there on Wednesday, and in the Commissioner's Court as well.
