A Note From Greg

I left my bench, as Judge for County Court at Law #1 and Probate Court, in order to further represent Brazoria County in a legislative capacity. I tried to represent Brazoria County in Washington D.C. I put in the work, I took the risks, made the struggles … but I lost. I have scars from continuing to fight for Brazoria County. The pains of defeat have become celebrations of victory that one finds in the face of adversity and failure. I prayed about the decision to run at that time, and believe it was God’s will that I run and lose. Coming to this reality has been a great awakening and gives me peace. Sometimes defeat helps ground you, brings you closer to family, and closer to what is most important. It is easy as an elected official, or someone that believes in serving others, to serve at the detriment to your own family, and having God remind me of this was a great blessing. I am a proud local Brazoria County boy and have been here my whole life, and I look forward to being your next Judge for the 239th District Court and retiring on the bench.
