I believe that a lack of trust in our courts is the most pressing issue because our judicial system is the backbone of our great nation. All individuals coming before a court need to know they will be treated fairly and that the law will be applied justly and uniformly. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Add to this reality the fact that our court dockets are crowded, and justice is often delayed, and it is not surprising that trust in our judicial system has eroded. We need honest and impartial judges who will work to ensure their courts are following the rule of law and upholding the United States and Texas Constitutions.
