I have dedicated my legal career to public service, not profit. I believe in justice, fairness, and the truth. I promise that if I earn your vote as your County Court at Law Judge, I will faithfully follow the law and not legislate from the bench. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights will be the foundation of my decisions and I will be fair and respectful to all who come to my Court and dedicate every day to keeping your trust.” – Kristi DeCluitt
