KEY ENDORSEMENTS








JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY

“To be a true supporter of the U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution, one shall cause effect to the words contained therein. I am running for justice of the Texas Supreme Court, Place 6 for the November 6, 2018 election because the highest and most important court in our state needs to be diverse more than ever. To have justice, equality and fairness, a system needs to encompass a body of beings comprised of various points of views and experiences. Justice, equality and fairness should not be mere terms of art but a reality. As someone who has encountered and worked with people of diverse backgrounds and life experiences, I know how important it is to be compassionate, open minded, sensitive, bias free, and decisive.
