Del Rio attorney David E. Martinez, Democratic Party nominee for the office of Val Verde County Attorney, has asked the Fourth Court of Appeals San Antonio to order the decertification of a petition to include incumbent Val Verde County Attorney Ana Markowski Smith on the November General Election ballot.

Smith is seeking re-election to the seat as an independent candidate. She said taking her off the ballot would limit local voters’ choices.
