LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tom Brummett was endorsed by the Lubbock Professional Police Association on Wednesday, in his bid for Lubbock County Court at Law No. 2.
“The Lubbock Professional Police Association is proud to endorse Tom Brummett for Judge of Lubbock County Court at Law Number Two. Throughout his legal career, Tom has demonstrated his commitment to work with law enforcement protecting our community from crime and seeking justice for all involved in the criminal justice system. His years of experience, specifically with alcohol-related offenses, are invaluable considering the large volume of those cases heard in County Court at Law Number Two. He is a recipient of the Justice Award, has been recognized by MADD, and has repeatedly volunteered to assist local and state organizations. His knowledge of the law and his leadership, both in and outside the courtroom, instills confidence he will continue to ethically, fairly, and effectively address the serious challenges facing the Court now and in the future. Tom has been a dedicated public servant for almost two decades and cares deeply about the Lubbock community. We look forward to working together to make Lubbock County a safe place to live and raise our families.” -LPPA President Matt Boggs
Brummett announced his candidacy on Thursday, Dec. 9.
“After 19 years of serving the people of West Texas, I want to expand that role and meet the needs of our community in a different way,” Brummett said.
Tom was born in Lubbock, graduated from Texas Tech and received his law degree from Indiana University. He has worked as an assistant district attorney under the last three administrations.
“Everything in our society is built on respect for the rule of law,” Brummett said. “If people don’t have faith the court is there to ensure our founding principles are strictly followed and the rules faithfully enforced, regardless of personal feelings, then we can’t ask them to respect any of our institutions or traditions or truly believe our government serves the people.”
Lubbock County Court at Law No. Two covers all of Lubbock County, and is one of two courts that preside primarily over misdemeanor criminal cases. The bench is currently held by Judge Drue Farmer, who is not running for re-election.
