On Friday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Paul Beane, incumbent candidate for Lubbock City Council District 4, talked with Chad and Rex about his campaign for re-election.

When asked about taxes vs. fees, Beane said that he only voted one time to raise the storm water fees, and never voted to raise fees again. He also disagreed with his opponent Jim Gerlt that the job of mayor and city councilmen should be full-time positions.

"When you start running for a job with a paycheck, you're doing it for all the wrong reasons. I can't think of a single good reason."

Beane said he wanted to see the southwest expansion of Lubbock continue. He also said that he would like to see the streets is Lubbock improved upon, particularly 82nd Street, and that he would like to see the city constitute to recruit new police officers as the city continues to expand.

Beane also talked about such issues as city and county relations, completely re-writing the city charter, and the new performing arts center being considered by the Chamber of Commerce.
