On Tuesday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Hasty talked about the reasons why so few people have filed for candidacy in Lubbock's upcoming elections.

While exploring possible reasons, Hasty said,

If you run right now, yeah, you're going to be around for that, for that big flip [from LP&L to ERCOT], and you're going to get blamed for it. You're going to get blamed for the future arena that's going to be built...You're going to get blamed for a lot of stuff. So maybe that's one of the reasons why no one wants to run, they don't want to be saddled with [the blame for] LP&L and ERCOT.
