Tony Wadhawan: Candidate for Fort Bend County Court at Law #2

Tony Wadhawan, candidate for Ft Bend County Court at Law #2 flanked by his wife Reshama and parents Ramesh and Shail at his 40th birthday party and campaign meet on Thursday, December 16, in Telfair Central Hall in Sugar Land.

SUGAR LAND: It was a 40th birthday party as well as a re-affirmation of the election campaign that he had kicked off a few weeks earlier. In this cozy atmosphere at the Telfair Central Hall decked out in red-white and blue, with balloons on a marquee backdrop, Tony Wadhawan was able to be himself with his family, friends and loyal supporters. He is a big man but nimble on his feet, and he double-stepped into the hall, accompanied by his wife Reshama, to the beat of Punjabi dhols as he was introduced to the crowd.

Wadhawan is the son of long-time Houstonians Ramesh and Shail Wadhawan who have operated Shelly Travel and now Zee Travel. He bears a striking resemblance to both and has their same affable attitude towards people.

But when it comes to the law, Wadhawan is all business. A product of Ft Bend schools, he got his law degree from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University. Since then, he has developed into a well-respected criminal attorney with a 14-year practice. He knows the ins and outs of the system, and regularly handles the kind of cases that the Ft Bend Court at Law #2 is known to deal with. He wants to spread his message across the county of his competency as he seeks to win in the primary on March 1.
