Medina – More than Qualified
Justice Medina, a former Harris County state district judge, succeeded Wallace B. Jefferson in Place 4 after Jefferson’s appointment to be chief justice. Gov. Rick Perry appointed Justice Medina, who was the governor’s general counsel since January 2004.
Before that, he was associate general counsel for Cooper Industries Inc. in Houston and served on the Harris County bench in 1996-2000 after appointment in May 1996 by then-Gov. George W. Bush. He was elected in November 1996 and again in November 1998.
Justice Medina was born on Galveston Island, attended public schools in Hitchcock and graduated with a bachelor science degree from Southwest Texas State University in 1980 (now Texas State University-San Marcos). In college he competed on the university’s karate and baseball teams and was on the Dean’s List. In 1989 he earned his law degree from South Texas College of Law. He was on the Dean’s List and a member of the American Bar Association Regional Moot Court National Championship Team.
Why Vote for Medina?
Justice David Medina has been a distinguished member of our Texas Supreme Court since May 1996. Justice Medina firmly believes in the rule of law and opposes judicial activism as promised by his opponent at a recent rally in Rockwall County.
Stalwart Texas conservatives, including Gov. Rick Perry, Attorney General Greg Abbott, State Representative Jodie Laubenberg, Representative Ken Paxton and State Senator Dan Patrick endorse Justice David Medina.
I am John White, Rockwall County TEA Party organizer, and I wholeheartedly endorse Justice David Medina for re-election Texas Supreme Court Place 4.
