Dan Pope Discusses Reelection Bid, Planned Parenthood Ordinance [INTERVIEW]
Thursday on The Chad Hasty Show, Mayor Dan Pope joined Chad in the KFYO studio to talk about his bid for a third term as mayor of Lubbock, as well as several other issues facing the city.
Pope answered questions and shared his views on several topics including a proposed ordinance designating the city of Lubbock as a "sanctuary city" for the unborn and the possibility of Planned Parenthood opening a location in the city, as well as property taxes, the city budget, and much more.
While speaking about calls to have Lubbock designate itself as a "sanctuary city" for the unborn, and the many similar requests the city receives on various controversial issues, Pope said,
That's not the lane that we need to be in. We need to do the things that we were elected to do: Provide police and fire services, make sure that our parks are maintained, make sure that we take care of our streets, do the things that citizens elect us to do...I look forward to what we hear from our city attorney's office, and we'll decide what the next step is.
