Honorable J. Christian Becerra, Judge
I come from a proud family that is steeped in public service. I learned at an early age that political involvement and advocacy are a privilege that should be fully utilized. My family is an inspiration to me because not only did they completely uproot their lives and come to the United States of America, they took the next step and dedicated themselves to the community and public service. My aunt, Lupe Uresti, ran for and became the first female Hispanic mayor of Rosenberg in the late 80’s. Her campaign made it clear that diversity and inclusion were going to be a priority here and she brought the elected structure closer to reflecting its constituency. I am nothing without my family and everything I have accomplished has been because of their support.
I am a native son of Fort Bend County, my community invested in me from a young age and they are why I have been able to accomplish so much so far. I am indebted to the community that raised and supported me, they are my family and they deserve advocacy and representation behind the bench. I believe it is my responsibility to answer this call.
The courthouse should reflect our diverse community. I have spent the entire 21 years of my legal career advocating for justice at the Fort Bend County Courthouse practicing in the areas of criminal, civil, probate and family law. My experience made me the most qualified candidate. I have strong connections to all of the newly elected Judges and the District Attorney and believe in the changes they have enacted and share their vision for a more diverse and progressive Fort Bend. I have the passion, drive, and dedication to serve my community.
