Governor Rick Perry
Reyna Endorsement News conference
Tuesday, March 2, 2004 : College Station, Texas


I am here today to discuss a matter that Texas Aggies and Baylor Bears can agree upon this election day . . . we must keep Justice Felipe Reyna on the 10th Court of Appeals.

The 10th Court of Appeals . . . which serves the people of Bryan/College Station, Waco, and Texans living in a 16-county region . . . is an important court that handles nearly 350 criminal and civil appeals each year.

As governor, I always look to appoint the best and brightest to our courts . . . man and women with the highest qualifications, proven experience and the legal intellect to ensure justice is always fair and always blind.

In Felipe Reyna, Texans have a justice who brings to the table all the necessary experience needed for the bench, plus a compelling life story.

Justice Reyna is the oldest of five children and not only was he the first person in his family to graduate from high school he was also the valedictorian of his class. He went on to earn his bachelor's degree from Baylor University and a Juris Doctorate Degree in Law from Baylor Law School.

Felipe Reyna paid his way through law school by working as a janitor at the 10th Court of Appeals. Now he is administering justice from those same courthouse grounds.

From janitor to Justice, Felipe Reyna has lived the American Dream. He has over come humble roots with hard work and determination, inspiring every Texan to dream big dreams.

And I am not the only governor so impressed by Justice Reyna that I felt compelled to appoint him to serve. In the early 1970's, Governor Briscoe Felipe Reyna to serve as the district attorney for McLennan County. Governor Bush appointed him to the State Board of Dental Examiners in 1995. And I was proud to appoint Felipe Reyna as a justice on the 10th Court of Appeals this past December.

Not only is Felipe Reyna the bipartisan choice of both Democrat and Republican governors, he is the overwhelming choice of attorneys in the 16-county region who recently expressed their opinion in the Bar Poll. Among the legal professionals who know the candidates best, two out of every three chose Justice Felipe Reyna.

Qualifications matter and experience counts. Justice Felipe Reyna has a lifetime of legal experience as a district attorney, a private practitioner, and now as a justice of the court. As a strong conservative, he understands it is his job to interpret and enforce the law, not re-write it.

Justice Reyna is the most experienced, qualified candidate who will ensure justice is fair and balanced for all who enter our court system.

On March 9th , if Republican voters remember only four names, they can't go wrong if they remember Bush, Carrillo, Green and Reyna…Bush for President…Carrillo for the Texas Railroad Commission…Green for the Texas Supreme Court…and Reyna for the 10th Court of Appeals.

Thank you.
