I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of my friend, District Judge John Fostel. My sincere sympathy to his family and friends.

As a judge, he was fair and understood the law, while showing compassion equally to all in his courtroom. I have personally watched him preside over many difficult cases and always felt privileged when he shared with me his explanations of the law.

As a true leader in Wise County, he brought honesty and expertise – especially in his appointment of Ms. Ann McCuiston as the county auditor.

I assume Gov. Greg Abbott will appoint a replacement for Judge Fostel, and I believe Stephen Wren would be an outstanding candidate.
