Former Lubbock City Councilman to Run for US Congress

A former Lubbock City Councilman is making a run for a seat in Washington. Randy Neugebauer announced Tuesday he will run for U.S. Congress in the 19th District. He says one of his goals as congressman would be to improve the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

"One of the things we need to do is sort through that and make sure we provide for a healthy healthcare system, an affordable healthcare system and a system that takes care of those people that are least able to take care of themselves," said Neugebauer.

Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock blamed a recent drop in Medicare reimbursements to hospitals for the layoff of 159 of its employees. Neugebauer joins the group of people who have thrown their hat into the ring after Larry Combest announced his retirement.

Other candidates who have officially announced their plans to run are former Lubbock County Court at Law Judge Will Dodson, businessman Mike Greer and Texas Department of Justice worker Larry Johnson.
