Crowley was born at Dyess Air Force Base and raised in Abilene, Texas. He graduated from the Abilene Independent School District and Hardin-Simmons University summa cum laude while working full-time. Crowley then graduated from Texas Wesleyan School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law) and immediately returned home to practice law in Taylor County.
Crowley currently serves on the Board for the Alliance for Women and Children, the Board for the Regional American Red Cross, is a member of Kiwanis, and attends Beltway Park Church. Crowley is also an adjunct professor of criminal law at Hardin-Simmons University. He was a small businessman in private practice prior to joining the Taylor County District Attorney’s Office and still maintains a small civil law practice today.
Judge Bolls currently hears Probate, Guardianship, Mental Health Commitment, and Juvenile law matters in addition to being Taylor County administrator and presiding over Taylor County Commissioner’s Court. Probate, Guardianship, Mental Health, and Juvenile matters take up 50-70% of the Court’s time day in and day out. These matters either involve property rights or a person’s freedom and liberty versus society’s interest in safety, which requires legal experience to make the correct decision under the United States and Texas Constitutions.
Crowley is the only attorney and only person in the race who has experience in these matters and will bring that expertise and knowledge in Probate, Guardianship, Mental Health Commitment and Juvenile law to correctly decide the Court’s civil docket. As a lifelong Taylor County resident, he will bring strong conservative leadership and knowledge of Taylor County Government structure to the Court’s role as County administrator. Crowley will bring his experience as a small businessman, capability to make tough decisions daily on felony cases, and lifelong fiscal conservatism to the annual Taylor County Budget Process.
