Press release provided by Mark Hocker:

Lubbock attorney, Mark Hocker, officially announced his candidacy for the position of Judge of Lubbock County Court at Law #1, filing the necessary paperwork today in Lubbock  to run in the March 2012 Republican Party Primary election.   

"After much prayer and reflection, encouragement from family, friends, fellow Republicans and community leaders, I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Judge of Lubbock County Court at Law No. 1.  The citizens of Lubbock County deserve a qualified judge with extensive experience in criminal law who will work very hard and do honor to the great legacy left to us by Judge Rusty Ladd." 

Mark has a unique balance of legal experience in criminal law as well as prior military service and is committed to hard work and conservative values.

 "I have prosecuted and defended hundreds of misdemeanor cases.  I have tried more than 200 jury trials.  I have practiced in courts all across our great state and will bring that perspective and experience to this position.  My seven years of service in the U.S. Army Reserves and all my education, work history and life experience has prepared me well for this position.  I will be the honest, hard-working, fair and impartial Judge that Lubbock County deserves."

 "I am very fortunate to be supported by my wife of 15 years, Heather Hocker, and my five year old daughter, Mary Elizabeth, as well as my family and friends.  It will be my great honor to serve Lubbock County."

Mark Hocker is 43 years of age, graduated from Texas Tech University School of Law in 1998, and from Texas A&M University in 1995.  He has designated local attorney, Sam Hawthorne, as his campaign treasurer. 

Election Day is Tuesday, Mar. 6, 2012. Early voting will run from Tuesday, Feb. 21 – Friday, Mar. 2, 2012.
