Some of you may remember that I ran against John Roach, Jr., when he first sought election to the 296th Judicial District Court. He won--I lost. In the beginning, I did not want to like him as a judge. I wanted validation that I would have made the better judge. I soon learned, however, that John Roach, Jr., brought a "style" to the bench that was his own. Judge Roach is a serious and thoughtful judge who shows a great deal of concern for the well-being of children. I have not always agreed with his rulings--he has ruled against my client on numerous occasions. However, I have never felt he did so for any reason other than an honest desire to do what is best for the children who are served by his court. To a long-time family lawyer who handles many, many high conflict custody cases, I know how important it is to those children that we have judges who are as thoughful in their decisions and their consideration of the evidence as John Roach, Jr., has been. Just as I campaigned 4 years ago that John Roach, Jr., should not be elected because of his father, I now urge the voters of Collin County to judge the son on his own record and not that of his father when deciding how to vote in the upcoming election. I have developed a great deal of respect for John Roach, Jr., as a judge over these last 4 years and I have appeared before him on many occasions--in some very difficult situations. I encourage all voters to make a decision based on the record of the individual. We need good judges in Collin County and Judge Roach is one of them already.
