EARLY VOTING INFORMATION (OCTOBER 24—NOVEMBER 4).
Evan Stone is running for Judge of the 393rd District Court in Denton County, his home for nearly two decades. Evan believes everyone—from disowned teenagers to international corporations—deserves a fair hearing. For Evan, courts are the place where government works most reliably. They are one of the few places where everyone, rich or poor, can be held to the same standards.
Whether we live in section-8 housing, country club mansions, or somewhere in between, we need judges like Evan Stone who take our stories—and our right to be treated equally—seriously.
We need judges who hold themselves to the highest standards, who will recuse themselves when they cannot give a fair hearing, and who surround themselves with people who challenge their deepest assumptions and who help them to see their own biases. We need judges who live, work and play among the people, rather than staying isolated in gated communities.
Evan Stone earned a reputation for dealing with judges with the same respect due to anyone. Judges aren’t nobility, but servants of the people. They should earn our respect by fulfilling their duty to serve. Stone is ready to accept that duty and serve the people of Denton County.
When a local journalist exposed one judge's apparent conflict of interest in a local fracking case, Evan thought we could do better. After careful consideration, Evan decided to run against him.
Evan is a regular guy with the credentials to be a judge. He doesn't have season tickets or a padded retirement account or a huge house—no hidden reasons to show favoritism to big business or his upper class friends. He knows first-hand about the struggle to make ends meet, and doesn't make excuses when he falls short.
He doesn't shy away from negative cases or cherry-pick clients who can bolster his reputation. Though he has compassion for the out-of-luck, he doesn't think they're any more important than others.
He's the sort of person anyone would want on the bench in their personal injury or custody case. And your vote can put him there.
