Karen Gibson Talks About Her Run for Lubbock County Judge
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings City Councilwoman Karen Gibson joined Dave King and Matt Martin to talk about her run for Lubbock County Judge against Curtis Parrish and Gary Boren.
Gibson stressed that the two main issues for her as County Judge are road upkeep and public safety. She believes that these two issues go hand in hand. She also spoke on the importance of getting the roads worked on while they are dry so that by the time it starts raining, the storm water has somewhere to flow. She also fully supports funding the Sheriff's department, but that we need to be mindful of where the money is coming from. "You've got to find a way to save taxpayer money," Gibson said.
The councilwoman also spoke on the recent concern on county commissioners giving themselves pay raises. An issue that she, "would be much more vocal against." She believes that if a commissioner wanted to give themselves a pay raise then they could put it on the ballot at the same time that they are up for reelection. "You know what the job pays when you go in," commented Gibson. Additionally, she stressed that she has never had a problem working with other people and thinks it's important to work with the other members of the court.
Early voting for the March 6th primary election begins Tuesday the 20th.
