Mayor Glen Robertson Discusses City Council Meeting [Audio]

Allen Corbin,

Friday on Lubbock’s First News, Mayor Glen Robertson gave details on the City Council Meeting that took place on Thursday night, discussed his concerns over the operation of the City Council, and announced his campaign for reelection.

Robertson noted that appointing new members to the Electric Utility Board (EUB) will not solve the problems the city is currently dealing with because it is the City Council that needs modification. He also noted that it was the Council that voted to increase the LP&L rates, so the Council needs to work to make positive changes.

Robertson discussed his frustration with the way the City Council is currently operating. He feels they are not working effectively to make necessary changes. He feels they have not done a good job in managing the budget. He said, “we need to start doing our job, because I don’t think we have been.” He also noted that, “we’ve got to figure out a way to earn back citizens’ trust.”

He also discussed the request for an investigation of Request for Proposals by the Lubbock Police Department (LPD). He believes a local investigation will help move the issue out of the way. There was one vote against an LPD investigation. Robertson also looked at the proposed Atmos fee implementation. Atmos has proposed an $18 fee across the region as a base meter fee. Robertson disagrees with implementation of such a fee and believes it should be fought.

Finally, Robertson announced him intention to run for reelection. He said, “I love 80% of this job. Being the mayor of this city, what I consider the greatest city in the greatest state in the best country in the world. I’m a very honored individual to have this job and I’m going to ask the citizens to do it for two more years.
