Campaign 2012 - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Campaign 2012

Newschannel 6 is helping prepare Wichita County voters make an informed decision about local candidates. We have been sitting one on one with the candidates in all three contested races in the county.

Newschannel 6 is finding out more about the man and woman running for 89th District Judge.

Incumbent District Judge Mark Price stays busy in the 89th District Court. "I've really enjoyed the eight years that I've served as judge. I think I've made a difference in our community."

Judge Price said he has tackled and cleaned up the docket backlog, something he feels he has succeeded in since taking office.

"I feel really good about the record that's been accomplished. I look forward to being re-elected and improving even more."

Judge Price's opponent is Wichita Falls native, Holly Crampton. She's been practicing law for over 30 years and is ready to bring in a new set of fresh eyes and change. Crampton is ready to help the 89th District Court cases backlog, specifically the civil cases.

Crampton said, "I would implement a docket control order in each civil case that would set a deadline for final trial."

Crampton wants more attention paid to civil cases. "There would be nothing lost relative to the criminal cases, but gained. It would move the rest of the civil docket more efficiently."

Despite some differences, both sides are looking forward to making Wichita Falls a better place starting with the legal system.

Judge Price said, "I will look at ways to continue to protect the children, which we have a lot of jurisdiction in that regards. I'll look at ways to protect the children and expedite the docket how ever we can do that."

Crampton said, "I can bring in fresh eyes and a fresh approach, especially when there has been years of backlog. All that can only be is an improvement for the community."
