Will Mayor Tom Martin Look for More Conservative Candidates After Council Raises Taxes?

At Thursday’s city council meeting,  Mayor Tom Martin voted against a tax increase.  Only Paul Beane joined the mayor in opposing the increase.    On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, the mayor was asked if he would try to make the council more conservative by recruiting conservative candidates for the next election.  He did not give a direct yes or no answer.

“I would hope whoever the voters elect — not only my re-election but also we have three council seats that will be up for re-election — I would hope they would elect conservatives.

Council members Victor Hernandez, Todd Klein, Karen Gibson, Floyd Price and Jim Gilbreath voted for the tax increase.
