Appeals Court candidate forum hosted by GOP groups March 19

ROCKWALL – A forum featuring candidates for the Texas Fifth District Court of Appeals Place 2 will be hosted by The Rockwall County Republican Women’s ACTIVE Committee and the Rockwall County Young Republicans March 19, 6:30 pm, at Rockwall High School.

Candidates for Place 2 are former judges Jennifer Balido, Jeff Coen, David Evans, Appeals Court attorney Kevin Keith and attorney Bill Whitehill.

The moderator will be 2012 Young Republican President John Stacy.

A debate was scheduled between three-term incumbent and family physician  Sen. Bob Deuell and semi-retired businessman Bob Hall but Hall was disqualified Monday for not meeting the five-year Texas residency requirement. He is considering an appeal.

This will be the first of three debate/forums planned by the ACTIVE Committee and Young Republicans designed to empower Republicans and other interested voters with the knowledge to cast an informed vote.

The candidates and the dates of the remaining debate/forums will be announced at a later date.
