Wednesday on The Chad Hasty Show, Mayor Glen Robertson, candidate for Representative of District 19 in the U.S. House of Representatives, joined Chad in the KFYO studio to talk about issues facing the nation, and his qualifications for the office.

Asked by Hasty if Robertson considers his own experience as Mayor and in public service as a qualifying attribute for representing District 19, the Mayor replied,

I'm absolutely the only one in this race that has a combination of forty years of business experience almost, combined with over twenty five years of public service serving either on school boards, city council, as mayor, electric utility board. I think and just the fact if you look what we've done in the last three and a half years in in the city of Lubbock, and how I have been able to manage a very diverse council, that's way left of center, and still be able to get things done, and look how great Lubbock's doing right now.

During the interview, Hasty asked Mayor Robertson, "What are some things that you would do differently than Congressman Neugebauer?"

My focus would be more on ag [agriculture] than Randy's was. Not anything against Randy. Randy's focus was on financial services and he was very strong on that. I think the main difference that you would see between me, and not just Congressman Neugebauer, but virtually every congressman, all 435 of them, is you're going to see me back in the district. You're going to see me back in every county, all 29 counties within District 19, visiting with the people, and asking them, "What are we doing right, what are we doing wrong?, and taking that kind of information back to D.C. and trying to literally be a voice of the people.

Hasty and Robertson also discussed other issues facing the nation, including those that he considers to be worth fighting for using government shutdowns.
