Democratic Judge John Creuzot Garners Republican Support Print E-mail

Judge John Creuzot started out in politics as a Democrat in Dallas County. When the Republicans gained control of the Dallas County Courthouse, he became a Republican. Now that the Democrats are poised to take over the Dallas County Courthouse in 2008, Judge Creuzot again has switched parties and is running as a Democrat for Criminal District Court No. 4 this election cycle.

In spite of the fact that Judge Creuzot is now on the Democratic ticket, a number of prominent Republicans are supporting him. Judge Creuzot has been endorsed by the Hon. Manny Alvarez, the Hon. David Finn, and Matt Orwig. Mr. Orwig was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas by the Bush administration and now is in private practice in Dallas.

Six Republican Trial Judges Change Parties Now Hoping to Keep Their Benches in 2010

In November 2006, more than 40 Republican judges in Dallas County lost their jobs when Democratic candidates swept the civil and criminal courthouses in an election that shocked even the wisest political analysts. Many analysts believe the shift was due to changing demographics within Dallas County, which has been trending Democratic for about six years. Twelve Republican judges, including Roden, did not draw a Democratic opponent in 2006. But in 2010, no one expects that to happen again. So Republican judges whose terms end in 2010 must make a choice: switch parties, stay with the GOP or retire. Six of them say they are switching parties……

The six who say they are switching parties are 291st District Judge Susan Hawk, 305th District Judge Cheryl Lee Shannon, County Court-at-Law No. 5 Judge Mark Greenberg, County Criminal Court No. 7 Judge Elizabeth Crowder, County Criminal Court No. 1 Judge Kristin Wade and Roden. The majority of them say they switched parties in an effort to keep their jobs.

Of Dallas County’s six contested trial court benches in the 2008 general election, only one incumbent switched parties from Republican to Democrat — John Creuzot of Dallas County Criminal District Court No. 4. The remaining benches are already held by Democrats or are open seats.
