Says “We Need A More Balanced Court”

Austin, Texas – Justice Gisela Triana, who currently serves on the Third Court of Appeals, today announced she is running for the Texas Supreme Court. Triana, a Democrat, is running for Place 8, the seat currently held by Republican J. Brett Busby, a political appointee of Governor Greg Abbott.

“It’s time for a change,” Justice Triana said. “Simply put, we need more balance on the Texas Supreme Court, a balance that is unfortunately lacking today. Access to justice is more than opening the courthouse doors to people. It means giving them justice once they are there.”

“My long experience as a judge at every level of Texas courts has taught me that we need a judiciary that guarantees a level playing field - a judiciary that does not put special interests ahead of everyday Texans in crucial issues like health care, a clean environment, social justice and the need for honest economic dealing.”
