RODERICK RODGERS WELCOMES YOU
My campaign focus is to ensure Equality and Fairness for all in my Courtroom.
Roderick is an Arkansas native and a Veteran of the US Army. He served five years on active duty serving both state side and abroad. Roderick also, served 5 years split between the US Army Reserves and the Texas National Guard once he completed his active duty services.

Roderick is a resilient and passionate individual who will fight for community safety but at the same time ensure Equality and Fairness for all people. I am seeking election for Harris County Justice of the Peace Precinct 5 Place 2.
I am running to bring a fresh new perspective with a wide range of personal and professional experiences that will contribute greatly to all who come before me. Harris County faces many challenges. I want to use the skills I learned professionally to keep Harris County safe and the community thriving.
Also, Roderick was recognized by Fort Bend County's Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for his work with Fort Bend County's DWI Court program. Roderick is and has always been devoted to the people. After years of working in the legal field and making positive changes in the lives of victims and their families, Roderick is now taking it to politics. It’s Roderick's intense dedication, passion and devotion that fuels his fight for change.
ISSUES & POLITICAL CONCERNS
Time for Change
Roderick Rodgers upholds many core values, one of them being the fight for social justice where it is needed. We need to live in a society where people do not merely support change, but fight for it.
Roderick is truly passionate about this issue, as it is one that impacts so many people all over the world. Roderick is working day in and day out to find ways to improve the cause. Roderick aims to maintain balance within the political system, and will keep pushing until the correct balance is reached. Our State is in the midst of a political, cultural, and social crisis. Texas is in dire need of real change in the Courts. To that end, I'm advocating for public office in 2022 in order to push progress towards constitutional governance in our Courts.
