THANK YOU Voters of Bowie and Cass counties, Texas for re-electing me to continue as Judge of the historic 5th Judicial District of Texas. Your selecting me in 2016 and again in 2020 by incredible margins is truly humbling! I hope to continue to earn your trust and support from the Bench. In particular however, I want to thank each of the jurors who have served on 5th District juries hearing cases and making the hard decisions. Your continued support is truly appreciated!
As was said in the Bench Bar Book of Texas in 1885:
“A Texas judge should be not only a clear-headed lawyer and a man of sound judgment, but he should have the courage to form and deliver his opinions regardless of danger or threats, and sometimes to pronounce judgment with a brace (a pair) of pistols lying conspicuously upon his desk.”
I look forward to continuing to administering Justice, with firm compassion when necessary, and, above all else, fairness as to the issues and people impacted by the decisions of the Court.
