Beth Payan for Judge

I am running for Judge of the 427th District Court, in the March 3, 2020 Democratic Primary. The 427th District Court handles felony criminal cases in Travis County and plays an important role ensuring the safety of our community.

For 23 years I’ve worked for the Travis County District Attorney’s Office in a number of roles. I’ve not only prosecuted serious crimes but also advocated for a variety of alternatives to incarceration where appropriate.

As a 30-year resident of Austin who got married, raised a family and became an active member in the community, I learned how important it is that we, as a community, insist that everyone is treated with fairness and equity.

As Judge I will ensure that those who appear before me are treated with fairness and equity while striking the proper balance between maintaining the community’s safety and the rights of the accused. Please support me with your vote, your endorsement, by volunteering or by donating to my campaign. Thank you!
