Katy Boatman, a conservative Republican candidate for the First Court of Appeals, Place 7, in 2018

FBCStaff-I want to introduce you to Katy Boatman, a conservative Republican candidate for the First Court of Appeals, Place 7, in 2018. The current justice in that place is not seeking reelection.

Katy has the relevant experience. She is currently an attorney at Andrews Kurth Kenyon LLP, practicing appellate law with Justice Scott Brister, a former Harris County judge. She maintains a diverse commercial docket at the trial and appellate levels, with a focus on oil and gas, contract, and health care disputes. She has practiced before Houston’s First and Fourteenth Courts of Appeals numerous times.

Katy also has the qualities we want in a judge. She is committed to upholding the rule of law, not legislating from the bench, and issuing timely decisions. I believe she will serve the people of Fort Bend County honorably. Katy’s husband works in Fort Bend County. She has been to Fort Bend County to meet the voters many times; I hope you get to meet her on one of her trips.

Katy went to Texas A&M University, graduating with triple honors after being heavily involved in student government. She then went to Baylor Law School on scholarship, where she served as the executive editor of Baylor Law Review and graduated with honors. Following graduation, she completed two appellate clerkships, both with outstanding conservative judges: Justice Dale Wainwright of the Texas Supreme Court and Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod of the Fifth Circuit.

In 2016, Katy was named the National Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year, as well as the Outstanding Young Lawyer of Texas and of Houston. Katy served for four years on the board of directors of the Texas Young Lawyers Association, elected by her peers because of her strong commitment to the legal profession. Since then, she has also served on the Houston Young Lawyers Association’s board of directors. She serves her community through her church, Grace Bible Church, Yellowstone Academy, The Women’s Home, and many other groups.

Katy’s opponent is a criminal defense attorney who also sues on behalf of plaintiffs. He has almost no experience before this court. I support Katy Boatman.
