Candidate Profile: John Creuzot

John Creuzot is running for re-election to Criminal District Court No. 4. Originally appointed by Governor Ann Richards, Judge Creuzot has been on the bench for 16 years and is presiding judge for criminal courts in Dallas.

In 1998, Judge Creuzot helped create the "smart on crime" approach championed by District Attorney Craig Watkins in the 2006 elections with his Dallas Initiative for Expedited Rehabilitation and Treatment (DIVERT) Court project. His efforts have earned numerous awards, including the National Association of Drug Court Professionals New Pioneer Award, the J. L. Turner Legal Association Outstanding Jurist Award and the State Bar of Texas Criminal Justice Section Outstanding Jurist Award.

Judge Creuzot is also a member of faculty training for the National Drug Court Institute and a faculty member of the National Judicial College. He has frequently been invited to serve with criminal justice related committees and organizations at the local, state and national levels.

Judge Creuzot invites everyone to attend his first campaign event, this Thursday, October 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, at Sammy's Barbecue, 2126 Leonard Street, Dallas. Special guest is Isiah Robertson, 6-time NFL All Pro linebacker. RSVP by email to service AT democracytoolbox DOT com or phone 214-544-0381.

(Note: I'll be happy to print profiles of about 200 words, preferably with a picture, of candidates for 2008 in the DCDP weekly Roundup. I held this one until this week to tie into his campaign event. I'll also put them on this blog as I post them there. Email me to roundup AT dallasdemocrats DOT org.)
