LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Local Democrats and the Lubbock Central Labor Council celebrate Labor Day with a picnic and political rally. The food was free and so were the speeches. Among the featured speakers were U.S. Senate candidate Bill White, candidate for Governor Hank Gilbert, and State Representative Joe Heflin of Crosbyton.
"The Central Labor Council represents over 2,500 in Lubbock County," says Billy Martinez, Chairman of the Lubbock Central Labor Council. "So, on Labor Day which of course is a labor holiday, we just have a picnic and it's no cost to anybody. Our local unions support it."
