Judge STACI

FOR JUSTICE, TEXAS SUPREME COURT

Dear Texans:

Throughout my career, I have worked hard to develop a reputation for being a fair and dedicated judge. I am determined to apply that reputation as a member of the Texas Supreme Court. So much of the state's most critical business and citizen's interest come before this court. The Texas Supreme Court is the highest court in the State of Texas for civil matters. Currently, all 9 Justice seats represent a Republican based mindset influencing the functions of business and the lives of people who may not share that particular mindset. For this very reason, I am asking for your support. Please elect me as your experienced, fair and balanced voice in the Texas Supreme Court.

Sincerely,
