Over 100 jobs coming to Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Good news for the Lubbock economy. The Lubbock Economic Development Alliance, or LEDA, says more jobs are headed to the Hub City. Two companies will be bringing over 100 jobs to the area.

Tyler Technologies, which is the largest provider and developer of municipal court and city financial software, will bring 107 high tech positions over the next two years. Mrs. Baird's Bakery will increase its workforce by creating 16 new jobs in its plant on East Broadway.  

"All you hear about at night are layoffs but here in Lubbock we're creating jobs but we're creating great jobs because of companies like this," says Kenny McCay. LEDA says this will bring 5.5 million dollars into the Lubbock economy annually.
