Commissioner Bill McCay Kicks Off Re-election Campaign

Rex Andrew, KFYO.com

“I just appreciate the opportunity to serve the citizens.”

That’s Precinct 1 Lubbock County Commissioner Bill McCay, speaking with KFYO News after today’s commissioners’ court meeting, a few hours before officially starting his re-election campaign. He’s running for a third term in office.

“It is so humbling, the job that I have, to work for the people of this county.  We should all be very proud of the incredible accomplishments here in Lubbock County.”

During McCay’s afternoon press conference he said one of his, and the county’s, best accomplishments is the transparency in Lubbock County government. Specifically, the county’s “online checkbook” and the Gold Leadership Circle Award for Financial Transparency from the Texas Comptrollers Office.

McCay also pointed to the implementation of “Super Precincts” during elections, the West Texas Regional Public Defender office for Capital Cases and the video visitation and magistration system at the new Lubbock County Jail as other major accomplishments during his terms in office.

Current Lubbock County Commissioners, Mark Heinrich and Patti Jones, attended McCay’s press conference, showing support for their fellow commissioner.

McKay will have an opponent in the Republican primary, former Lubbock City Councilman Frank Morrison.
