Audia Jones


A Democrat You Should Know!

According to his website DaSean Jones is running for judge in order to set the conditions for Harris County to lead the nation in a more progressive direction with respect to Criminal Justice. DaSean Jones wants to institute alternative sentencing initiatives that are not solely punitive, but rehabilitative. Although a quiet and reserved professional, DaSean has been afforded an incredibly interesting life experience he uses to shape his perspective. DaSean believes that the people who make the life decisions for so many of Harris County's citizens either lack life experience or do not share in the same or similar experiences of the men and women who are punished on a daily basis. As a decorated U.S. Army combat veteran, DaSean has been faced with experiences and challenges that have broadened his mind. After living and working throughout the world as a military brat and then as an Army Officer, DaSean was lucky to share and learn about many different cultures and ideologies. In executing his duties as a combat arms officer, it was always paramount that he leads his soldiers in a fair and balanced manner. Thus, he believes that the Judicial System should be fair and balanced. DaSean decided to run for Judge after witnessing first-hand how some judges do not disperse justice fairly across the board and seem close-minded and prejudiced towards some defendants and attorneys. Ready to tarnish their records or reputation. Yet, these same judges afford those who they are familiar with or more in


line with financially better treatment and basic courtesies even moments after giving someone else "the benefit of the doubt." Financial status, connections, race, clothing, and other variables should not come into play in regards to the administration of justice. This is not fair and needs to be stopped. DaSean does not believe that such conduct marches in step with the appropriate character of a judge in Harris County, Texas, or anywhere else in the United States. As a result, it is his opinion that the criminal justice system, which is very necessary and fundamental to law and order, is off track and that those who benefit from it generally turn a blind eye to its folly. DaSean was raised by his dad, a retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant, and his mother, who passed away on Valentine's Day a few weeks after his return from his second tour in Iraq. DaSean has three siblings. Two of which are disabled veterans who served overseas. While in elementary school, DaSean visited Auschwitz, Anne Frank's house, and other key historical examples of social injustice and abuse of power. These experiences have helped mold him into the person he is today. After graduating from Tuskegee University, DaSean commissioned as an Army Field Artillery Officer, where he led soldiers from all walks of life and held the highest standards as an officer and a gentleman. After his mother's death on February 14, 2008, DaSean decided to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer. As a senior Army Captain, he left a promising career, sold his house and the balance of his belongings in order to pursue his calling. He attended law school while working in the Army Reserves. Upon completing his degree, he started his own law practice. DaSean, his wife, and two children now call Houston home.

DON’T FORGET THAT EVERY VOTE WILL MATTER ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH IN HARRIS COUNTY ANALYSIS BY AUBREY R. TAYLOR

T

here’s a lot of talk about Texas being a red state floating around. Sure, traditionally that has been the case. But after the historic showing put on display by Texas Democrats back on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, reasonable minds would have to agree that the aforementioned distinction could possibly be on the verge of becoming a hue of a different shade in the very near future – especially if Democrats have anything to say about it.. But on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the day when Democratic hopefuls and Republican hopefuls are set to face off, nothing should be taken for granted. So, don’t forget that we must make it our business to elect the “BEST-QUALIFIED” candidates who value our vote when we go to the polls to cast our vote!

EARLY VOTING PERIOD:

The early voting period will begin on Monday, October 22, 2018, and end on Friday, November 2, 2018 in the State of Texas.

ELECTION DAY VOTING:

If you can’t vote early for some reason, you can still cast your vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 in the State of Texas
