Let me be the first to tell you, I am not a politician. I am a lawyer who has spent the last 33 years working hard to acquire the legal knowledge and experience required of a District Judge. Moreover, I am a conservative Republican who strongly believes that we must restore a traditional conservative approach to our judicial system; an approach that will ensure consistency in judicial decisions through strict construction and application of our laws. All citizens of Liberty County are entitled to a level playing field when they come to court.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in a small town in New Mexico; however I got to Texas as soon as I could.
My college education was interrupted in 1969 when I entered the U.S. Army. Thirteen (13) months of my service was in Vietnam. Upon my return from Vietnam and after a period of recuperation, I resumed my college work. With the help of the GI Bill and working at nights, I graduated from New Mexico State University, with honors, in 1975.
After college and while my heart was set on law school, I was broke. I worked construction, saved every dime I could save and entered South Texas College of Law in 1977. Once again, I worked my way through law school and graduated from South Texas, cum laude of my class. During law school I received various academic awards, including being named to the Deans Honor List each year.
I started my legal career in 1980 in the law office of Price Daniel, Jr. in Liberty. I have practiced law in Liberty and surrounding Counties for 30 years, and have tried hundreds of criminal, civil and family law cases throughout the State of Texas. I have also successfully argued numerous cases before the Courts of Appeal, including the Supreme Court of Texas.
The mid-term elections in November provide us, as voters, an opportunity to make a statement in support of conservative principles. This is a critical time for America, and I strongly believe that we must act to restore a conservative approach to the affairs of government, starting at the local level. If you agree with me, I am your conservative alternative for Judge of the 75Th District Court and I welcome your support.
