Texas Governor Greg Abbott 7/6/2016

“The time has come to reform judicial selection, tenure & review.” 

Contract for Cash Free Courts

I pledge to support a resolution to amend the Texas Constitution that changes the way judicial selection is done in Texas which would take money and political donations out of the judicial selection process. Qualified judges would be appointed through a nonpartisan process instead of being elected in a partisan election, and Texans would still have the opportunity to vote to remove bad judges through a retention election system.


Voters should know where candidates stand on this important issue. The names of political candidates who are for and against Cash Free Courts will be added after all primary elections are over. If candidates wish to do so, they may provide us with a letter more fully explaining their position on the issue, which can be uploaded to this site for public viewing.
