We did it!


Wow. We did it. After years of planning and hard work, the voters of JP 2 have given me the opportunity to serve as Justice of the Peace. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this team victory. From day one, I had one message for our voters and supporters. We need a judge who knows the law, and will treat people fairly. I’ve practiced these concepts as a prosecutor, and I will do the same as your Judge. This victory was a tremendous team effort, and I would like to thank so many people who rallied together to make this happen.  Our campaign team was unbelievable. My deputy campaign manager, Nathan Armentrout, and every team member was so impressive. I just can’t thank you folks enough for your long hours, rain or shine. You spread our message to thousands of voters at their doors and over the phone. Truly the heart of our campaign. Thank you to the hundreds of campaign supporters who donated time, money, office space and encouragement. I want to thank our PrecinClick to continue reading...

Video: Why I am running for JP 2


A message from Randall Slagle recorded at Travis County Media Services .

This week I was endorsed by the Austin Chronicle. They have some very strong feelings about this race.


This week I was endorsed by the Austin Chronicle, and this is what they had to say about the race: Democratic incumbents Steeg and Gonzalez face the standard Libertarian challenges, but we expect their qualifications and experience will rebuff that light opposition. More serious an issue is County Court at Law No. 6 Chief Prosecutor Randall Slagle's effort to remove from office Republican Glenn Bass. The incumbent ran in 2010 only because he was pushed out of the Republican primary in HD-48, in a doomed attempt to challenge Rep. Donna Howard. Bass has no legal training, has mismanaged the office by failing to issue or enforce warrants for three years, and had to give his dogs away (and pay potential litigants) after four employees claimed that their boss’s pets bit them in the office. Travis County residents – of all political proclivities – deserve better than Bass.   Click to continue reading...

I’m proud to announce that I have now been endorsed by the Austin Police Association, the Austin-Travis County EMS Employee Association and the Travis County Sheriffs’ Law Enforcement Association


I'm proud to announce that I have just been endorsed by the Travis County Sheriffs' Law Enforcement Association. I have now been endorsed by the Austin Police Association, the Austin-Travis County EMS Employee Association and the Travis County Sheriffs' Law Enforcement Association. These very important public safety organizations recognize that we need a well-trained judge who knows the law and will treat people fairly. Thank you for your support!  

Justice of peace forfeited $3.9 million by not issuing warrants


My opponent, Glenn Bass, does not have a law degree or any formal legal education, and he recently told the Austin American-Statesman that he learns from his individual cases. Our courtroom is NOT a place for on the job training. Real decisions are made that affect real people, including the youth of Precinct 2. You don't want the judge "learning" when he makes the decision in your case, or the case of your son or daughter. We need a well-trained judge who knows the law and treats people fairly.

Travis County Justice of the Peace paid $11,600 for bites of Justice


From 2011 to 2013, the current JP 2 judge repeatedly brought his dogs into the courthouse, allowing them to attack people and resulting in him paying thousands of dollars to the victims for their injuries. Help me bring professionalism and order back to our courtroom. Click on the link below to read the Austin American-Statesman article.
