Robertson said he was very pleased with the overwhelming support he received for his campaign. He said he believes one of the reasons his campaign was so successful was because he focused on the issues and the solutions.

“I think in West Texas that we’re a little tired of the negative campaign, and the fact that we stayed on message and didn’t veer from it I really think resonated well with the voters.”

Robertson said one of the first things he’d like to do is to sit down with all of the city council members and discuss at length the issues in their districts.

Robertson then shared his views on various issues affecting the city of Lubbock, including Lubbock Power and Light, raises for city employees, the city budget, downtown redevelopment, taxes and making city government more accessible to the people. Robertson also took listener’s calls concerning LP&L, water usage and former mayor David Miller.

Glen Robertson will officially be sworn in as the new mayor of Lubbock this Saturday, May 19th,  at 10 AM.
