INTERVIEW: McBrayer for 99th District Court

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Early voting for the March Primaries begins next Tuesday. This week, we're focusing on the 99th District Court. 

Presiding Judge Bill Sowder is retiring. Four Republicans are running for that bench. 

Mark McBrayer has practiced law for 14 years and clerked under Senior U.S. Judge Sam Cummings.

The 99th court hears primarily civil cases. A guest on the News@Nine Monday, McBrayer said the key to running an efficient docket is to not allow continuances and keep cases moving forward quickly. He said any judge needs to be prepared to handle criminal cases, including a felony case. 

With case loads increasing in other district courts, McBrayer said he will be faithfully committed to the Constitution and protect the rights of Lubbock County citizens.

"A judge's job is to be faithful to the Constitution at all times; nothing more, nothing less," he said. "I've told people I will start everyday with the pledge of allegiance to remind myself that my job is to protect everybody's God given and constitutionally guaranteed rights and make sure that the law is applied as written and fairly."

Since there are no democrats running for this seat, whoever wins the primaries will take the seat. 

Early voting starts Feb. 18. and the primaries are on Super Tuesday, March 3.
