The 22nd Judicial Court Seat covers Hays, Caldwell, and Comal counties. It is one of four district courts that covers Hays county, and one of three that is shared with Comal county. Currently, the Judges in the other two courts shared with Comal County are residents of Comal county.
The 22nd District Court deals with civil, family law, and criminal cases. The bulk of the docket is felony criminal cases.
The two candidates for this court are Bruce Boyer of Comal County and David Glickler of Hays County. Boyer owns a real estate title
company, and is a board certified
specialist in residential real estate law. For the past six years he served as Mayor of New Braunfels, and was a city prosecutor for 22 years before that. He has not been In a trial court in the past seven years. During the primary, Boyer received the majority of his votes from Comal County.
David Glickler, a resident of Hays County, is a prosecutor with the Attorney General’s Public Integrity office. He spends most of his time in district and appeals courts prosecuting public officials from around the state. Although Glickler is very successful at bringing public officials to justice, he would greatly prefer to serve in the San Marcos, Lockhart, and New Braunfels court houses rather than travel around the state.
During the primary, Glickler received majorities in Hays and Caldwell counties in a four-way race.
Glickler has a sound understanding of the laws and constitutions of this state and our nation. He has a deep working knowledge of judicial procedures from daily exposure. He has experience in criminal, civil, and family law practice, and is a board certified criminal law specialist. He holds to an originalist judicial philosophy.
Of people that I trust who are familiar with this race, all of them endorse Glickler.
