Esteban Blanco Endorses Chuck Vanover

It is with great pleasure as I join many others to endorse Mr. Chuck Vanover for the position of Judge in the Tarrant County Criminal Court 8. Without a doubt, Chuck is the most qualified candidate to hold this honorable office. As a sworn law enforcement officer for eleven years, SWAT team member, and over ten years of prosecutorial experience, Chuck has seen first-hand how the criminal justice system works and furthermore, he has excellent ideas on how to improve processes and procedures. In all that he does, Chuck exemplifies honesty, fairness and thoughtfulness. He will use those qualities to create a better balance between imposing the law, helping families of victims of violent crimes to have closure and protect & defend the citizens of Tarrant County. Please join me on March 4, 2014 and cast your vote for Chuck Vanover.


At your service,

Chuck Vanover Wins Tarrant County Conservative Candidate Fair 2014 Straw Poll and Tarrant County Republican Assembly Endorsement

IMG_0832We are excited to announce that Chuck was the winner of the 2014 Conservative Candidate Fair Straw Poll to be Judge of Tarrant County Criminal Court 8.  Here are the straw poll results of Chuck’s race and all the others.  http://www.candidatefair.com

Chuck also received an endorsement from the Tarrant County Republican Assembly.  There were only 5 contested races to receive an endorsement from the TCRA.  A candidate had to get over 66% of the votes to win the endorsement, which is hard to do in a 2 person race much less in a 3 person race such as Chuck’s.

36 Year Tarrant County Law Enforcement Officer Endorses Chuck Vanover


I am a 6th generation resident of North East Tarrant County and have known Charles (Chuck) Vanover for over 25 years.  He has been a life long resident of North East Tarrant County and graduated from Grapevine High School.  He is very honest, personable and professional.  When he graduated from college he worked for the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department and latter for the Dallas/Ft Worth International Airport, Department of Public Safety as a police officer, fire fighter and emergency medical technician.

I was his field training officer in the patrol/rescue division, he was a fast learner.  When he made personal contact with an individual he treated each with respect as if he was recruiting them for a a posse for a latter date.  I found this to be an honorable trait for such a young man in that day and time. I do believe that each victim and lawbreaker went away feeling they had received deep respect from a very dedicated and professional individual.  Some other traits that I observed was that he was a real leader not pushing from behind, but pulling from the front and had very high moral integrity, in which, I witnessed daily.

I was very honored when after a few years he came to me and asked my advice on becoming an attorney and working in the courtrooms of criminal justice, in Tarrant County. You as a citizen of Tarrant County , if you want a criminal judge who is dedicated, professional, honest and with integrity.  He is the person to vote for.
