Pending final Senate confirmation, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has appointed Camp County Attorney Angela Saucier to the 76th Judicial District Court for a term set to expire on Dec. 31, 2020, or until her successor shall be duly elected and qualified.
The appointment comes in light of the recent death of Honorable Kerry “Danny” Woodson who was appointed to the position by then Governor Rick Perry in 2011. Woodson first served the unexpired term of longtime Judge Jimmy White of Titus County following his death. White was originally appointed to the position in 1995 by then Governor George W. Bush.
As one of several other candidates in contention, Saucier submitted a detailed application and completed judicial questionnaires and other necessary documents before ultimately traveling to Austin for an official interview.
A native of Pittsburg, Saucier has served as the Camp County Attorney for the past 10 years. Additionally, she serves part-time as an assistant district attorney for Wood County and has held a private law practice since 1999.
Saucier received an Associate of Applied Science degree in banking from Northeast Texas Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in business management from LeTourneau University and a Juris Doctor degree from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.
She is a member of the State Bar of Texas (SBOT), Texas Bar College, Camp County Bar Association, Texas Council on Family Violence, SBOT Child Protection and Family Law Section and a member and former president of the Wood County Bar Association. She is also a board member for Habitat for Humanity of Camp County, a former volunteer for the Pittsburg Independent School District Improvement Plan and the City of Pittsburg Home Rule Charter Commission. She is also a former member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church Women’s Ministry Leadership Team.
