Meet Judge Rogers
I am the current Judge in the 268th District Court in Fort Bend County, running for the 14th Court of Appeals.
I’m a 7th generation Texan, and have spent two decades practicing law. I have practiced in both state and federal courts, from 2003 until I was elected as a Texas Judge of a District Court.
I was born and raised in Houston, and attended The Kinkaid School and Second Baptist Church, where I was baptized at 10 years old. I completed my undergraduate business degree at Baylor University and my Master of Business Administration degree at Pepperdine University. I completed my law degree at Trinity Law School and my Master of Laws degree at Regent Law School.
I’ve been married for over 21 years to my wife Rebecca, and we have four children: Emily, John, Mac, and Will. We are members of St. Laurence Catholic Church. I have worked with my wife for more than ten years leading marriage and family preparation classes, promoting healthy marriages and strong families in Greater Houston.
In my free time, when I’m not on the bench, I raise Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep on my farm in Needville, Texas.
What I Believe
I believe in God and that we are all created equal under the law. I went to one of the very few Christian law schools in the country that teaches law from a Christian perspective. With that, I have always wanted to dedicate my life to serving others.
My family has always had a strong sense of service that started with my Great-Great Grandfather. In the 1950’s, his philanthropy was recognized by the community with a monument placed in front of the Harris County Courthouse in his memory. They used a bible to represent him and his service to the community. There it sat for half a century until liberal judges got involved and tore it down, and the monument became one of the first casualties of the woke cancel mob.
That’s one of the reasons I became a Judge. “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” is something I take with me into the courtroom as part of my judicial philosophy. Not everything belongs to the government.
That’s why I believe in following the law, and following the constitution. Woke politics doesn’t belong in the courtroom. If we simply had more Judges who followed the law and the constitution, we would have a much better, safer country with less crime. It’s time to end the practice of legislating from the bench!
I believe that when you elect a Judge, they need to show up to work and do their job. In Texas, Judges are allowed to set their own schedules, and some of them never show up for work and I’m sick of it. I am sick and tired of Judges who see the backlog, see the crime, campaign and get elected, then do nothing!
Enough is enough! Let’s get to work.
Why I’m Running
I’m not afraid to get canceled, and won’t give in to the woke political agenda. My judicial philosophy is simple, I follow the law and I enforce the law.
Crime is out of control. Accused criminals are waiting endlessly for trials that are never happening and we have liberal Judges that sit around doing nothing about it. These judges don’t show up for work because they don’t have to show up for work!
I’m tired of it. I’m tired of crime. I’m tired of Judges not doing their job. I’m running for Justice to keep criminals off the streets, enforce our laws, protect Texans, and to get the justice system back to work!
If you’re tired of crime, if you’re tired of backed up courts, if you’re tired of Judges not showing up to work, I’m asking you to join our team!
We have a lot of work ahead of us. It’s time we took back this seat, and elect a Justice who will stick to the constitution and laws of Texas. If you stand for that then I am asking for your vote for the court of appeals.
