State Bar Board Representative for District 10

Request from TAMMY WINCOTT:

Re: State Bar Board Representative for District 10

[Transmittal of this message has been approved by Trey White, SABBA President.]

Greetings:

I, Tammy Wincott, am running for a place on our State Bar Board of Directors as one of two persons representing Bexar County (Tom Crosley is the other person whom I would join). In order to be a candidate I must obtain 115 signatures from practicing lawyers/Judges within Bexar County or who hold an active license and have a primary address within Bexar County.

Panhandling at the Courthouse steps has not been lucrative in the past couple of years and neither is obtaining signatures; therefore, I can use all the assistance possible.

Therefore, I’ve attached the petition.

An electronic signature in any current practiced format including /s/ John M. Smith is acceptable. A person may sign and return the petition directly to me via my email: twincott@wincottlaw.com – there is no need to circulate the petition for multiple signatures per page, if I turn in 115 separate pages I will just have to plant more trees.

I must turn these in to the State Bar NLT February 25, 2022; therefore, time is of the essence.

Please download the petition (pop out button on top-right, or download link is at bottom of form).

If you have an difficulty printing the page, or any other questions, please call me or email me at the contact information below.

Thank you for your help!

Yours truly,

/S/ Tammy L. Wincott

Attorney & Counselor At Law
