            JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY




            “I believe we need judges courageous enough to apply the Texas laws and Constitution as written. The legislature passes laws. Judges must interpret those laws cognizant of the public’s understanding and legislators’ intent when the law was passed. Opinions should be clear, concise, and understandable.”
