Judge Jamison Files For Appeals Court

 It’s that time of the political season when republicans and democrats are filing to run in their party’s primary election in March 2010.

In contested races, primary voters  will decide which candidates will make it to the general election in November. 

While the race for governor will steal most of the media spotlight, there are several other important races –  from County Judge to Judges who preside over various courts.

If you are a candidate who has filed to run, please send a press release and photo to me at mbenton@kprc.com and I will post it on this blog.

Judge Jamison Files for Appeals Court


 Houston, TX—Former Harris County district judge Martha Hill Jamison announced today that she is running for an open seat on the 14th Court of Appeals. Justice Kent Sullivan is not seeking re-election to Place 5. There is no announced Republican opponent.

 “I look forward to serving the 14th Court and the Texas judiciary,” Judge Jamison said. “I bring a broad range of experience in civil, family, criminal and juvenile law, which is necessary for this important court.”

 Judge Jamison, currently serving as Senior Advisor to Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar Leo Vasquez, is a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law. She is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Although her law and mediation practice and judicial experience have primarily focused on civil law, she served as a member of the Harris County Juvenile Board, volunteered to preside on occasion over the STAR Drug Court and handled numerous matters as an overflow judge for the Harris County Family Courts. Judge Jamison also served as the Civil Administrative Judge and the Legislative Chair for the Harris County District Judges during her nine years on the bench.

 Judge Jamison was consistently highly rated in the Houston Bar Association’s annual Judicial Qualifications polls while she was on the trial bench.

 Judge Jamison is a member of the Board of Directors for the American Judicature Society. She was a member of the State Bar of Texas Court Administration Task Force on Court Administration and Class XXV of the American Leadership Forum. Judge Jamison is a member of the Regional Steering Committee for Young Life and is the Discipleship Commission Chair at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
