Help keep Judge Maria T. Jackson in office by voting YES to re-elect her in the upcoming 2019 election or skip the lines and vote early.

I would like to renew my position as your Presiding Judge of the 339th State District Court for Harris County Texas because the court needs an experienced leader who can handle the sensitive and complex issues that address the courtroom everyday. I have been a judge for 16 years now. Before becoming the presiding judge for the 339th Criminal District Court in 2008, I was a Municipal Court Judge for 5 years.

The 339th is a Felony Court, and I have faithfully served as the presiding judge over this court for 11 years. I have implemented sweeping changes in my Court for DWI probationers that are saving many lives. These sweeping changes have been adopted by the Harris County Probation Department and many of my Colleagues.

During this time, I have earned the reputation of being fair and impartial with everyone that appears before me. I am humbled, appreciative and proud to report that I am respected on both sides of the aisle. And it’s worth noting that I was voted Houston Press Best Criminal Court Judge a few years ago. I won the 2018 Texas State Judicial Bar Poll earlier this year and I have also been endorsed by the Major Law Enforcement Organizations around the State of Texas.

When re-elected as your presiding judge, I promise to work closely with my fellow colleagues in the court, the Texas Legislature, the Governor of our great state, and the community at-large to address issues that need addressing as it relates to making sure no one is wrongly convicted and dangerous criminals stay in prison. It is my belief, that I will be an asset to the Court because of my extensive experience as a trial judge, my compassion, my wisdom, and my diverse background. Furthermore, I believe all Texans deserve to have stable and unbiased leadership.

I am the stable even handed person we need during times like these. I am Maria T. Jackson, I am asking for your vote, and I thank you in advance for your consideration.
