On the Tuesday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Dan Pope joined the show in the KFYO studio to talk about the reasons he believes that he would be the best choice for the next Mayor of the city of Lubbock, and his vision for the city.

Answering the question of why he has decided to run for Mayor, Pope said, “I think I have the leadership skills and experience to help move the city forward.”

During the interview, Hasty asked Pope how he would describe his political philosophy. Pope responded, “I’m a conservative Republican. I’m a fiscal conservative. I’m a believer that government is not the solution, in fact, often government’s the problem.”

Hasty and Pope also discussed issues such as power production and LP&L, storm water and taxes, city debt, smoking bans and private property rights, as well as city budget and policy matters with regard to the duties of Mayor.

When asked about how he would deal with the matter of downtown redevelopment, Pope said,

Downtown redevelopment’s critical. Downtown redevelopment need to be a private effort.

Pope is a local business owner, a graduate of Texas Tech University, serves as a member of the Rawls College of Business Advisory Council, Chief Development Officer of Covenant Health System, as well as Lubbock Independent School District Board of Trustees President. Pope is an active member of First United Methodist Church, an Eagle Scout, and past member of the South Plains Boy Scout board.
