When next you see Allen Place, David Gonzalez, Kristin Etter, Mark Daniel, Sharon Johnson, and Bobby Mims, give them a big THANK YOU. These criminal defense lawyers were extremely effective in maintaining the balance in our courtrooms. Their work with the legislators and their aides proved to be most fruitful. Every one of these individuals worked tirelessly on our association’s behalf, and thus, finally, for the residents of Texas. Primarily because of their effort we’ll not have reciprocal discovery come from this session of the Texas Legislature. However, for the next two years, we must earnestly work to educate our legislators on the differences between “Brady” and “Discovery.”
I would like to thank those members who took to heart President Kennedy’s challenge and asked what they could do for our association. I sincerely hope the TCDLA committee chairs I steered you to were helpful. It is most heartening to have members who want to volunteer their skills to “just help” other members. Our organization is fortunate to have so many truly altruistic members.
I would like to thank the staff at our association’s headquarters; they are doing a wonderful job in keeping us moving forward, from seminar arrangements to fulfilling the different committee needs.
I would like to thank you in advance for mentioning to your TCDLA district board member that you have not yet had the pleasure of reading their article in the Voice, but certainly are looking forward to it. I would like to thank all those board members who have fulfilled their responsibility by submitting their articles.
Good verdicts to you all,
The Hat Lady
