Justice Zooming to Texas

 July 10, 2020, 6:30 p.m.

Democratic Women of Comal County will host a virtual meeting with the four Texas Supreme Court candidates and the candidate for the Third District Court of Appeals, all of whom will join the meeting. 

Special interests have little to worry about in the Texas Courts, which are packed with Republican judges. Currently all judges on the Texas Supreme Court are Republicans, but we can start to turn that around in November.  

Four courageous, intelligent women are running for the four open seats on the Supreme Court. They are all Democrats, and they will be at the DWCC virtual meeting on July 10, 6:30 p.m. Tune in and hear from Judge Amy Clark Meachum, candidate for Chief Justice, and Justice candidates Atty. Kathy Cheng, Judge Staci Williams, and Judge Gisela Triana. We will also hear from Judge Darlene Byrne, who is runnning for Chief Justice of the Third District Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over Comal County. These races are vitally important to justice in Texas, and these women are fascinating. This is history!

Please send an email to for an invitation and instructions about joining the Zoom meeting. All are welcome.

Starting a top left – Supreme Court candidates Judge Staci Williams, Judge Gisela Triana and Attorney Kathy Cheng; candidate for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Clark Meachum; candidate for the Third District Court of Appeals, Judge Darlene Bryne.
