LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - State Representative Delwin Jones will have an opponent in running for Texas House District 83, which includes part of Lubbock County and all of Cochran, Gaines, Hockley and Yoakum counties.
Zach Brady, a Lubbock attorney and a Texas Tech graduate who worked for GOP Sen. Robert Duncan, also of Lubbock, and for former Democratic U.S. Rep. Charles Stenholm of Abilene, said he would challenge Jones in the next election.
He served as Student Body President while at Tech and continues to have strong ties to the University. He currently serves as Chairman of the Texas Tech Chancellor's Council Advisory Board, and is a member of the Dean's Advisory Board of the Tech College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
According to the Zach Brady campaign, Zach is running for the Texas House because West Texas deserves principled, energetic representation in Austin.
