In 2013, Governor Rick Perry appointed Hart as Judge of the 230th Criminal District Court where he won election as Judge of that court in 2014 to serve a full term. As Judge, Hart was the consistent preferred candidate for Judge with his peers in the Houston Bar Association Preference Polls and scored in the top of his judicial peer class in Houston Bar Association Qualification Polls, including receiving higher scores than the incumbent Judge of the 230th District Court.
While Judge of the 230th District Court, Hart was named “Judge of the Year” by the Texas Gang Investigators Association (TGIA). TGIA recognizes one Judge each year for his or her outstanding contributions in the battle against gangs and organized crime.
Hart currently serves as Division Chief with the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s Office after being swept out in his 2018 re-election bid in the Democrat straight-party wave that turned all county benches and offices, including County Judge, blue that year.
It is time to return a Judge to this bench who respects the law, respects the defendant’s rights, respects victims in the courtroom and also respects the safety of the community when it comes to those individuals who threaten it.
Brad Hart is an award-winning Judge who has earned the respect of his peers on both sides of a case and who will be a Judge you can trust to protect the rights of the parties in the courtroom and the safety of the Harris County at large.
For Judge of the 230th Criminal District Court, vote Brad Hart for the November 2022 election and return justice to the court.
