LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Local businesswoman Karen Gibson announced Thursday she wants to represent southwest Lubbock on the City Council.
Gibson's family owns Gibson Heating and Air-Conditioning and believes small businesses are the backbone of the Lubbock economy. "I pledge to be a conservative steward of our resources, a fair and honest voice and to always place taxpayers of District 5 first," said Gibson.
Councilman John Leonard currently sits in the District 5 seat. He announced back in December his run for County Commissioner Patti Jones's job. The City Council election will be in May.
