Judge Staci Williams today announced her decision to run for the open Chief Justice seat on the 5th District Court of Appeals in the March 2024 Democratic Primary. In making her announcement, Judge Williams noted she made her decision after a groundswell of support from grassroots activists and the legal community around the District.
“After months of calls from supporters asking me to run, I’ve made the decision to move to a court where I can make a larger, more positive impact on the lives of the people of North Texas. This bench is essential to protect the people of Texas from increasingly radical policies advanced by a very wealthy few. I pledge that the decisions I make will always reflect the law and that I will improve the court by making it more transparent. My focus will always be on the people of the District,” Judge Williams said.
“I am deeply humbled by the outpouring of support from the people across the district. I pledge to continue earning that support by working hard for the people of the Fifth District every single day.”
