FROM THE BENCH
OF THE LAW
UPHOLD AND DEFEND
“A judge’s job must be to strictly interpret the law as written and follow the Constitution. A judge should never legislate from the bench. Grounded by my conservative values and guided by the Constitution, I pledge to you my deep respect for the law.”
- Cariann Bradford
With Judge Chitty announcing his retirement, Kaufman County needs the next generation of constitutional conservatives to step up and ensure our conservative values are represented in Kaufman County’s Court of Law.
For the last 15 years, Cariann Bradford has established herself as a legal expert in both the public and private sector. As a former Criminal Prosecutor, Cariann is known to be tough, but fair.
Cariann’s work in family, criminal, probate, and mental health law is extensive. She has worked for 10 years as a certified Ad Litem serving on behalf of children, the disabled, and the mentally impaired. She knows how to fight for our most vulnerable. Her first priority is to protect Kaufman County families.
A life-long Republican, when Cariann was in high school she volunteered for George W. Bush’s campaign for governor when Texas was run by liberal Democrats and no one thought Bush could win. Since then, Cariann has stood fast promoting our conservative values and today is an active member of the Kaufman County Republican Women’s Club.
Cariann has been an active member of our community serving on the Kaufman County Children’s Advocacy Board, the Forney Education Foundation Board, and the Dallas Community College Criminal Justice Advisory Board. She’s always ready to lend a helping hand.
Cariann Bradford is the mother to three amazing children who attend school in the Forney ISD. They are members of C|Life Church in Forney, Texas. She is a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts, a Gold Award recipient, and an avid CrossFit athlete. Most days, you can find her cheering loudly on the sidelines at one of her kid’s sporting events.
