Lawyers Come Out To Support Rosemary Lehmberg

First, please understand that I have a bias on this topic. One of my law partners is the brother of the Travis County District Attorney.

Gov. Goodhair really wants to have Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg resign so that he can name her replacement. I and a group of other lawyers all signed an amicus brief to support Lehmberg. http://www.keyetv.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/lawyers-come-out-support-rosemary-lehmberg-8259.shtml We can not give Goodhair the opportunity to name a replacement for Rosemary Lehmberg. I was busy forwarding the petition to a number of lawyers and I was happy to see a good response.

Again, Lehmberg made a mistake but should not be removed from office unless you want to see Goodhair control this office.

1. I hope Rosemary holds on to her office

Just the fact the teabillies hate her is reason enough for me to support her.

Hands off Travis County, Goodhair!

6. Here is a lay petition for Austin natives

http://www.change.org/petitions/citizens-of-travis-county-support-district-attorney-rosemary-lehmberg-remaining-in-office

We strongly support District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg and strongly oppose her removal from office.

Rosemary Lehmberg has had an extraordinary 36-year career as a Travis County prosecutor, an Assistant District Attorney, and since 2009, as District Attorney. Unquestionably she has developed and maintained one of the best district attorney’s offices in the United States. She served as chief prosecutor in Judge Tom Blackwell’s 167th District Court. She also served as chief of other major divisions in the District Attorney’s office—including the Career Criminal Division, the Major Crimes Division, and the Public Integrity Division. She founded the Travis County Children’s Advocacy Center, and for her work on behalf of child abuse victims, she was named Best Lawyer for Children’s Issues. Under her leadership the Public Integrity Unit has successfully prosecuted both Democrats and Republicans who have violated the public trust.

We want to have 1,000 signatures to support Rosemary and her years of service to Travis County.

4. The one that needs to be removed

from office is Perry himself. Hope you are successful in your endeavor, we don't need any more Perry cronies in charge.
