Weatherford Democrat, May 15, 2016 –
Either our Republican Chair and her friend are ignorant or they are intentionally deceptive.
Lynn Marie Johnson resolved over 20,000 criminal and civil cases, presided at 1690 trials, held over 11,570 hearings and magistrated 2,850 defendants. She was UNDER budget each year, cleared a huge backlog of cases and increased the efficiency by over 30% through efficiency, organization and hard work.
Prior to being elected, Lynn Marie Johnson handled hundreds of contested civil, family and criminal matters across Texas and across the United States. Public records do not lie.
Curtis Jenkins operated $85,000 OVER budget. Public records show Jenkins tried no contested civil cases and 10 criminal cases in his 23 years. This Court is exclusively about trials. Disputes are brought to the court to be decided by TRIAL. Jenkins working a few years as a Clerk at the Court of Appeals is not judicial experience or trial experience. If that is experience, then standing in a garage will make him a Chevrolet.
Political insiders attack using name calling and innuendos to avoid comparing experience, training and expertise of the two candidates. Jenkins is responsible for his minions.
Senior District Judge Jeff Walker, appointed by Administrative Judge David Evans, recently disqualified Jenkins in a case because of “impropriety or the appearance of impropriety” partly based on salacious postings on his website by one of his supporters.
Lynn Marie Johnson has made no negative comments about Jenkins’ personal life or his unusual propensities even though some would impact his suitability as Judge. The voters are entitled to the most qualified candidate and the truth.
