Travis County DA
Notes from Evan Smith
"Ronnie Earle is the Travis County District Attorney.
Earle was first elected Travis County District Attorney in 1976, and is presently serving his sixth four-year term. He has been reelected four times without opposition. Earle has garnered national attention recently for his investigations into alleged ethics violations by Texas for a Republican Majority, a political action committee chaired by Tom DeLay. Prior to being elected District Attorney, Earle served as a member of the Texas House of Representatives, chief counsel of the Texas Judicial Council, and presiding judge of the Austin Municipal Court." - Evan Smith, Texas Monthly Talks, Broadcast 5.5.05
