Education Attended school in Lorenzo, class of '81 graduate. Attended Western Texas College and West Texas State University.
I have worked in public service for 40 years including 7 years in the USAF and working at the capitol in Austin. I've helped state employees, teacher and others fight for better pay and benefits, and have worked as a cotton grader. My experience as a election clerk will enhance our work on voting integrity in Lubbock.
I will be voting for the Venue Project. With the closing of the auditorium/coliseum we will be in dire need for a multipurpose arena to house events that other venues in our community cannot host. Having a new venue to stage rodeos and stock shows (dirt events), and concerts (6000 seats), with meeting rooms and banquet facilities will be a major economic stimulus for our county. Financing it with a venue tax paid for by visitors is the way to go.
My top priority is to make sure we have an efficient and effective county government to meet the needs of a growing Lubbock County. Managing our 175 million dollar budget is the responsibility of our county commissioners. From roads to emergency services, we need to make sure every part of the county has equal access to quality infrastructure and services in a timely matter. The only job I will have will be the business of Lubbock County!
