We won the March 4th 2014 Republican Primary and now we move on to the November 4, 2014 General Election. If you vote in one of the ten counties in our district, then I am asking for your vote and your support.
Governor Perry appointed me to serve as a Justice on the 9th Court of Appeals to fill the position of Justice David Gaultney, who retired. It is an honor to serve on the court with a wonderful group of Justices, and to be the first woman to serve as a Justice on the 9th Court of Appeals.
I may not get to meet you in person because time simply does not allow for me to do so. I will endeavor to work hard and do my very best every day as I continue to serve on the court. And, I will continue to respect the rule of law and uphold the solemn oath I have taken. Please view to find out more about me on the ElectJusticeLeanneJohnson Website and about how you can help with the campaign. And thank you for your time and support.
Justice Leanne Johnson
