County Judge Davis to seek re-election

“I am Stephanie L. Davis and I am seeking re-election to the office of County Judge for Comanche County.

I have been your County Judge since January 1, 2019. I am confident that I have been fair, thorough, diligent, and hard-working. Throughout all the challenges we’ve encountered together over the past couple of years, I’ve demonstrated a passion for service and leadership for Comanche County. I have fostered relationships and worked collaboratively with other elected officials and leaders at the municipal, county, state, and national level. I have listened to the concerns of my county constituents, and, as a result, have made informed and impartial decisions that have benefited and strengthened the county. I have helped adopt and operate within a fiscally sound budget that makes the most efficient and productive use of Comanche County’s resources. I have encouraged county-wide positive change through strategic planning, and have helped establish well-reasoned policies and procedures to ensure managed growth in the county.

I currently serve as the Chairman of various boards in Comanche County, including the Emergency Management Board, the Comanche County Courthouse Security Committee, the Agency on Aging Board, and the 911 Central Dispatch Board. I also serve on the Juvenile Probation Board for the 220th Judicial District, the Central Texas Rural Transit District Board, and the Texas Association of Counties Judicial Education Committee.

I am licensed to practice law in the State of Texas and maintain certification as a mediator in both civil and family disputes. I am an active member of the Texas State Bar College honorary society of judges and lawyers, as well as the State Bar of Texas Judicial Section. I have been inducted as a Fellow of the Texas Judicial Academy, a partnership between the Texas Tech University School of Law and the Texas Association of Counties. I currently deliver legal education training on Juvenile Law matters to the Texas Association of Counties Judicial Education Programs and leadership training to the Texas Association of Counties County Court Assistants/Coordinators Training Conferences. I was recently nominated by my peers as a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, “a global honorary society of lawyers, judges, law faculty and legal scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in the profession and service to society.”

I am honored to represent Comanche County on various committees at the national level. I received an appointment from the President of the National Association of Counties to be a Vice Chair of their Rural Action Caucus Steering Committee. I also received an appointment from the President of the National Association of Women Judges to be the Chair of their Rural Courts Committee.

My roots run deep in Comanche County. I attended Sidney and Comanche schools and graduated from Comanche High School in 1992. My husband, Dr. Garry Todd Davis, is a family practice physician at Comanche County Medical Center. We have a son, Harrison, and a daughter, Hannah. We are members of East Side Baptist Church in Comanche. I am the daughter of Ernest and Gwen Woolsey, and the daughter-in-law of Garry and the late Jan Davis, all life-long residents of Comanche County.

In 1996 I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelors of Business Administration, and in 2001 I graduated from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) with my Doctor of Jurisprudence. I am a current student in the Public Leadership Credentialing Program at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

I am asking for your continued support and vote in the March 2022 Republican Primary. When re-elected, I will continue to work hard to address Comanche County’s immediate challenges and long-term needs. I will continue to keep the citizens of Comanche County educated and informed on all matters of county government.

I am excited about the future of Comanche County and I would be honored to continue my service as your Comanche County Judge.”
