Judge Hancock Announces Candidacy For 7th Court Of Appeals

He's only served on the 7th Court of Appeals since July 8th, but Mackey Hancock already knows it's a job he'd like to keep.

On Thursday, Judge Hancock announced his candidacy for Justice of the 7th Court of Appeals. Governor Perry appointed him to finish out the term back in June. Now, if he wants to remain there he'll need to be elected by the people.

"My whole campaign is built around the fact that I've had 18-20 years experience serving the public as a sitting judge - as a trial judge at the county court at law level and the district level. And, what I intend to do is carry that experience forward and continue to serve the citizens," said Judge Mackey Hancock.

Meanwhile, Lubbock District Attorney Bill Sowder is taking Hancock's place in the 99th District Court. He was sworn in Friday afternoon, at the Central Jury Pool. Sowder will serve until the next general election, when he may opt to run for a full term.
