New Lubbock sheriff to be sworn in

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There is a new sheriff in Lubbock County, and he will be sworn in on Monday.

County Commissioners, Tuesday, named Chief Deputy Kelly Rowe as the new sheriff. He replaces former sheriff David Gutierrez, who resigned to take a job with the state.

The swearing in of Rowe will happen on Monday, September 21st at Noon at the Lubbock County Courthouse Gazebo.

Commissioners say Rowe's experience with the new Lubbock County Jail was one of the main reasons he was hired. Rowe will serve as sheriff for at least 14 months and plans to run in the March primary as a Republican.

Two other applicants, Animal Services Director Kevin Overstreet and Deputy Don Carter say they also plan to run in the March primary.
