My name is Kristi Hood, and I'm committed to making your voice heard in Bexar County Texas.. I want to play an active role in making my community, in particular Bexar County Probate Court No. 2., a place where incapacitated and the elderly are treated with respect and dignity.  A place were the law is followed and the fate of the most vulnerable of us is not up forgrabs by the lawyer who contributed the most to Judge Rickhoff's election campaign. . If you share my concern, I urge you to connect with me and help make a change for the better! Together, we can make a meaningful difference-- for our families, San Antonio, and Texas.. 

HE DOES NOT FOLLOW THE LAW!! He does not allow evidence.

"Believe you can and you’re halfway there."



In the last election cycle,2010 the San Antonio Express and News had this to say about the incumbent. "Republican Tom Rickhoff, a longtime Bexar County
officeholder. ​ Tom Rickhoff should have informed voters during his re-election bid four years ago that he planned to give up the mental health docket
after the election. It was not ​ until after he had been assured another term on the bench that he disclosed to his colleague, fellow  Probate Court Judge
Polly Jackson Spencer, that he wasn't handling the mental court docket anymore.“In an effort to reduce angst and conflict in my life, I need to step aside
from the mental health docket now,”  He wrote in a letter to Spencer one week after the election. The voters could have used that information before they
cast their ballots.  Rickhoff's actions blindsided the public and caused an undue hardship on his colleagues. Rickhoff sought election to  the probate court
bench 10 years ago seeking to maximize his bottom line by collecting a state pension for his  work as a 4th Court of Appeals Judge and a juvenile district
court judge — while building up a county pension on a probate court bench.Too often, Rickhoff's agenda is about him more than the taxpayers he was
elected to serve from the bench. Rickhoff said his intent in stepping away from the mental health docket was to prompt change in the way the courts
operate. Less drastic and more cooperative measures would have been more appropriate. Rickhoff's behavior is unacceptable for a judge. The voters
who have supported him in the ​ three decades since he was elected district clerk deserve better"
​. This has cost the taxpayer of Bexar County an extra $100,000.00 a year to hire a visiting judge to hear these cases
