Former Lubbock City Councilman John Leonard Issues Statement Concerning the Now-Ended FBI Investigation

An almost 4-year long investigation of the City of Lubbock by the FBI is over.

Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin states the investigation is closed and that no charges will be filed in the matter.  During the FBI raid at city hall in May of 2008, the FBI seized computers, hard drives and documents from the city. 

Today, during Pratt on Texas on KFYO, Mayor Martin said he didn’t know what exactly prompted the investigation.  Former Lubbock City Councilman John Leonard, who was serving on the Lubbock City Council during the investigation, issued a statement to KFYO News saying that he’s relieved the investigation is over:

“I am relieved that this 4 year personal nightmare is over.   I have maintained my innocence throughout this painful process.  It is unfortunate that the personal politics of destruction, initiated by a key elected city official and a few city bureaucrats against a handful of their perceived opponents, were so extreme and costly to the tax payers of Lubbock.”

Over $3.5 million dollars was spent by the city in legal fees during the FBI’s investigation.
