“My supporters and I believe that my many years of successful trial and mediation experience have provided me with the tools needed to competently and effectively manage the legal issues associated with the position of district judge,” said Davis. “The experience I gained while serving on the Boerne ISD School Board will prove immensely helpful in managing the budget, staff, docket and organizational matters that come with the position of district judge.”

Davis also coached award winning debate and mock trial teams at Boerne High School for seven years. “I have a deep commitment to the youth of the district and would endeavor to include them in the judicial process,” he said.

Davis and his wife, Elizabeth, will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary this year. They are the parents of two daughters, Madeline and Libbye.

A native of Odessa, Texas, Davis graduated Magna Cum Laude from Angelo State University in 1981 with a BA in History, before receiving his Juris Doctorate from Texas Tech University, School of Law in 1984.

“I respectfully ask for your support in the upcoming Republican primary, March 4, 2008, and I pledge to you, the citizens of the 216th District, that I will serve the district fairly, honestly and diligently,” said Davis at his candidacy announcement ceremony.
