State Comptroller presents $28,000 to Lubbock and Lubbock County

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Comptroller Susan G. Combs was in the Hub city Thursday morning for two different reasons. The first was to announce that she is running for the elected office of Comptroller again, and she also presented the City of Lubbock and Lubbock County a check.

On Thursday morning at the Market Street on 50th Street, Combs announced her plan to run for the office of Comptroller in the upcoming election. As Comptroller, Susan is the state's chief financial officer. She manages the state's treasury operations, monitors Texas' fiscal health, guides legislative decision makers by estimating state revenues and ensures state taxes are collected fairly and efficiently to fund vital programs and services for the people of Texas.

After her announcement that she will be running again, there was a check presentation to the City of Lubbock and Lubbock County for unclaimed property. The check was in the amount of $28,000.

The City of Lubbock has reclaimed $2,168 in unclaimed property, and Lubbock County has reclaimed $25,874. During the presentation, Combs urged all residents in the Lubbock area and surrounding communities to check the unclaimed property list to see if they have money waiting to be claimed.

The State is holding $1.6 million dollars in unclaimed property for more than 16,000 people in Lubbock County. The Comptroller's office has returned about $612,000 to Lubbock County in the last two years.
