'Chronicle' Should Have Endorsed Buchanan for Place 6, Court of Appeals
RECEIVED Mon., Oct. 23, 2006
Dear Editor, Why did the Chronicle choose not to make any endorsement on Place 6 in the 3rd Court of Appeals race [“Endorsements,” Oct. 20]? Bree Buchanan, who is running against Bob Pemberton for Place 6, represents the only family-law expertise available to the court as Justice Bea Ann Smith steps down. Her 17 years of legal experience, which include her current position as a professor at the UT Law School, running the Children's Rights Clinic, and serving as legislative director for the Texas Council on Family Violence make Bree an important addition to the 3rd Court of Appeals.
