Glen Roberton to Announce Candidacy for Lubbock Mayor on Thursday

Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin will have an opponent in the upcoming May city election.

Glen Robertson (pictured with his wife Karen) will officially announce his candidacy for mayor Thursday morning at 11am at the Cactus Theater, located at 19th Street and Buddy Holly Avenue.

Robertson says his campaign will focus on the city’s rising debt, continued deferral of routine maintenance and truth in taxation.

“I know I am fortunate to live and work in Lubbock, but we do have our share of problems that must be addressed,” said Robertson. “My campaign will focus on solutions to the issues we need to address and my profound belief in the necessary traits our leaders must possess in order to move us in a new direction.”

Robertson states he currently owns and operates three Lubbock businesses which employ more than 60 people. Throughout the last 18 years, he has served on two separate school boards, the Ransom Canyon City Council and numerous appointed boards and commissions. He is currently a member of the City of Lubbock Electric Utility Board.

Robertson ran unsuccessfully against Victor Hernandez for Lubbock City Council District 1 in 2010. Mayor Tom Martin has served as Lubbock’s top elected official since May of 2008.
