Jeff Griffith and Deanne Clark Discuss Campaigns For District 3 Runoff Election [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, District 3 candidates Jeff Griffith and Deanne Clark spoke with Tom Collins and guest host Sondra Ziegler about last week's election results.
The race for the city council position in District 3 was a 3-man race between Griffith, Clark, and barber shop owner Maurice Stanley. After all the votes had been tallied, Clark ended up with 38.5% of the total votes, while Griffith received 33.3%. Stanley, who will not be advancing to the runoff, received 28% of the votes.
Both candidates said they will continue their block walking efforts in order to get more people out to the polls in June. Clark said she will continue to keep citizens' rights as the main focus of her campaign, and plans to meet with Stanley to see what she has in common with him and his voters. Meanwhile, Griffith said his strategy will be to focus and better explain his position on three issues: LP&L, water and city debt.
