More than 100 dedicated Dallas Democrats braved temperatures near 100 to fill both volunteer rooms and our parking lot at our Wendy Davis phone bank and volunteer appreciation.
Dallas County welcomed thousands of Democrats from all across Texas to hear our candidates accept their nominations, vote on party officials, and create our 2014 Texas Democratic Platform, which all Democrats can be proud of.
Hot off the union printing presses! Take a Turning Texas Blue T-shirt home today. Keeping Dallas County "Blue" costs nearly $190,000 annually and we sincerely appreciate every dollar!
Judge Ken Molberg will be on the November 4, 2014, general election ballot as a candidate for the Fifth District Court of Appeals, Place 5. Justice Jim Moseley resigned last week, creating the vacancy on the court, which has jurisdiction over criminal, family and civil appeals cases for Dallas, Collin, Rockwall, Kaufman, Grayson and Hunt counties.
"This court is one of the region's most important. It deserves a new justice who has a sense of fairness, integrity and independence, as well as significant legal and judicial experience. With nearly 40 years of legal experience, and having twice been elected as a trial judge, I think I offer the voters a compelling choice," Judge Molberg said.
Judge Molberg is the only candidate in the race with judicial experience, having presided over the 95th District Court since his election in 2008. Since that time, the judge’s colleagues have unanimously elected him on three occasions to serve as the Presiding Judge of all civil district courts of Dallas County.
