Today is the first set of endorsements I’m releasing – I begin with the easy endorsements but ballot positions many of you will know the least about.
In the three-way race for Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Place 4, I’m strongly endorsing Kevin Patrick Yeary. Yeary has appeared on Pratt on Texas a few times and is as impressive to talk with as is his resume. Kevin Yeary will make a fine judge on our top criminal court for Texas.
In Place 3 of the Court of Criminal Appeals I’m voting for Bert Richardson – his opponent is a judge from San Angelo who I don’t think should be wearing the black robe at any level.
For Place 9 on the Court of Criminals Appeals I have no endorsement; candidates have made zero effort to contact voters in Northwest Texas. [Update: I fully endorse Place 9 candidate David Newell after having questioned respected people and having him on the show.]
That’s Johnson, Hecht and Brown for the Texas Supreme Court and Yeary, Richardson and Newell for the Court of Criminal Appeals.
