Upholding the Law

In light of the recent action by the federal judiciary on the federal Attorney General case, I have been urged by some to push back against the large special prosecutor fees the county is paying in the state case.

I want you to know that I will continue to honor my oath of office to faithfully execute the duties of my office and uphold the law.

I did so through twenty-five years of military service and almost ten years as your county judge. I will continue to do so.

When the Commissioners Court receives a valid, uncontestable court order from a district judge, properly certified by the county auditor, I will obey the court order.

My personal opinions about the fees do not affect my upholding the law.
