Hope you've heard the news: I’m running for Texas Supreme Court Justice, Place 2. The primary election is March 6, 2018. Election Day is November 6, 2018. I am running because justice demands the highest standards. I am very concerned that our courts today are falling short. Too many judges have forgotten they serve the people, not political parties. Texans deserve better. Changing the system is tough, but improving the quality of judges doesn’t have to be. If you know me, you know I’m up to the task. Will you take this journey with me?

My experience – 12 years on the bench, 27 years of legal experience and a lifetime of service to Texas communities – has taught me that balance, equity and fundamental fairness are standards that all judges must strive for as we interpret the law and seek justice. I am the son of a truck driver, who worked my way through law school and learned from my parents always to fight against injustice. As a community leader, I fought to expand affordable housing and end discrimination. As a lawyer, I sued polluters to protect our neighborhoods. As a judge, I’ve fought to make our court system more transparent, accountable and fair. 

There are a number of ways that you can help: (1) please join our campaign (tell your friends and colleagues that you support me); (2) follow me on Twitter @stevenkirkland and Facebook @JudgeSK to get the latest on the campaign, and find out about upcoming events and volunteer opportunities; and finally (3) Contribute here.  Fundraising for this election cycle is now open. 

Thank you,

Judge Steven Kirkland
