“Texas judges make critical decisions every day that impact our families and our freedoms, particularly on our intermediate appellate courts, which are often the last stop for some of the most consequential decisions affecting our state,” TLRPAC General Counsel Lee Parsley said. “We need judges who are experienced, qualified and committed to applying our laws as-written. Katy Boatman brings significant litigation and appellate experience, and a critical commitment to upholding the integrity of our Constitution and our legal system. TLRPAC is proud to endorse her.”
