Re-Elect Judge Michelle Slaughter


Dear Friends,

It has been an honor and privilege to serve you, since January 1, 2013, as your “tough but fair” elected judge of the 405th District Court of Galveston County, Texas.  I have kept every promise I made in my 2012 campaign (and as detailed more fully on the “Promises Kept” page) and then some:

The 405th District Court is now the #1 Most Efficient District Court in Galveston County (it was the least efficient under my predecessor): 

  • Highest disposition rate of civil and criminal cases of any district court;
  • More jury trials in the 405th than any other district court;
  • Saved tax-payer dollars by increasing efficiency and finding and implementing cost-saving measures;

Kept my promise to change the direction of the Court:

  • Eliminated my predecessor’s STEP program which gave felony probationers multiple chances despite probation violations;
  • Ensure plea deals are in the interest of justice;
  • Promote open and regular communication with law enforcement and the community;
  • Save tax-payers thousands of dollars each year by auditing fee vouchers for court-appointed attorneys;
  • Served as a Constitutional Conservative judge by being faithful to the Texas and United States Constitutions and enforcing the law as written;

I have been a 24/7 Judge for the people of Galveston County:

  • I have been available at all times of the day, night, and weekends to sign search warrants;
  • Volunteer to work overnight on weekends (10 p.m. to 5 a.m.) for no-refusal weekends to help take drunk drivers off the road;
  • Volunteer to one-week rotations every few weeks for the STRIKE program to help take drunk drivers off of our Galveston County roads.

With your help and support, the 405th District Court will continue to be the most efficient and effective district court in Galveston County run by a Real Republican and a True Conservative.  Please contribute to my campaign by volunteering, making financial contributions, and by voting for me in the March 1, 2016 Republican primary (Early Voting February 16 – 26).  Let’s work together to safeguard the future of Galveston County.

In God and Texas we Trust,





Michelle Slaughter
Judge, 405th District Court
Galveston County, Texas
