On Thursday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Glen Robertson talked with Chad and Rex about his campaign for Mayor of Lubbock.

Robertson said that three of his main issues are the rising debt in Lubbock, maintenance of city structures, and taxation though utility fees.

Every council for the last ten years has voted to approve the budget, which has approved raises in fees, which are nothing more than hidden taxes.

Robertson said that he is opposed to excessive taxation, but that it would be irresponsible to say he wouldn't raise taxes if elected Mayor. He also mentioned that the city charter needs to be looked over and revised to "clear up a lot of antiquated items." Robertson also talked about other city issues, like downtown redevelopment, LP&L and the possibility of council meetings in the evenings.
