Statement by Denise Pratt

 HOUSTON – Denise Pratt, Judge of the 311th Family District Court, announced her resignation today.  She released the following statement:

“The relentless attacks by my political opponents have become a distraction to the work of the Court, and to the Republican Party in Harris County.  I cannot, in good conscience, allow it to continue.

“My goal has always been to serve the children and families of Harris County, but I won’t sacrifice my family’s well-being any longer to continue to serve as Judge.

“I am suspending my campaign as well.  The harassment by my opponents will continue as long as I remain on the bench. 

“I have worked to elect Republican candidates for over two decades.  I have served as a Precinct Chairman, Election Judge and President of a local Republican Club.  I don’t want to see my Party, which I have worked to build, dragged down by the media circus that has surrounded this whole affair.

“I didn’t run for office for personal aggrandizement; I ran to make a difference.  While sitting on the bench I witnessed the family unit being torn apart, with children usually paying the biggest price.  I am proud of the work I did while I served.  I hope I made a difference in the lives of the families that appeared in the 311th Family District Court.”
