Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com AUGUST 2, 2002 3 around Houston Judge Patronella to speak on renters' rights issues David Patronella, presiding judge of Harris County Justice of the Peace Court (Precinct 1, Place 2), will lecture and answer questions on renters' rights topics for gay Houstonians this week. One of the best known judges in Texas, he will speak as a guest of the Houston Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus. HGLPC Bc-ard of Trustees member Clair Koepsel described the event as a "not- to-be-missed chance for parties on both sides to learn from an acknowledged authority who deals with renter-landlord disputes on a regular basis." The only Democratic judicial incumbent in Harris County, Patronella has held his present position since 1989 and is running for reflection this year. "The focus of his talk will be eviction legalities, and that's a hugely important topic," said Koepsel "But I hope he lias time to say something about the different courts we have as welL We have Justice Courts, County Courts, Municipal Courts, and State District Courts. The county courts are divided into three kinds, and there are four kinds of state courts. We have to elect judges for all these benches, and how many voters really know the difference? We may have to ask Judge Patronella to come back again." -Gary Garrett ft For info Houston Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus meeting 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7 Houston Lesbian & Gay Community Center 803 Hawthorne • 713-524-3818 £ The Houston Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus hosts Harris County Judge David Patronella next week for a lecture at the Houston Lesbian & Gay Community Center.
