Sahadi has been employed by the law firm of Wigington, Rumley, Dunn & Ritch, LLP, since 2009. He was appointed by Corpus Christi Mayor Joe Andrade to sit on the Crime Control and Prevention District Commission, which determines how money and resources of the city’s police budget are allocated and spent.
Sahadi is a graduate of St. Edward’s University and the University of Houston Law Center.
Sahadi’s main duty will be to assist in the enforcement of city ordinances. The city sought to create a municipal court as it plans on becoming aggressive in enforcing environmental and building codes.
Council member Ed Carter made the motion to select Sahadi and council member Alfred Perez seconded the motion. The motion passed by a 5-0 vote. Council member Vickie Rubio was absent.
“I sought the position because the City of Goliad needed a judge and a court to oversee enforcing the city ordinances,” Sahadi said. “I felt I was the best person to fill that role given my vast experience and background in criminal and civil law.”
