LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Are you happy with how the government is spending your money? How about your city services? How would you rate them? What about education. Think it is going in the right direction?
Well, there is one group of folks who have a huge say in all of these issues. They are our elected officials. While I respect the office they hold, I am often scratching my head at the decisions they make. Having said that, the real power is mine and yours. We the people put these folks in office. Only we can give them the power to make those decisions.
Consider this; this March dozens of incumbents and new comers are asking for your vote. The outcomes of races in Lubbock County alone have historical implications. It's perhaps the biggest election in decades.
Sheriff, commissioner, county judge, district judges, state representatives, and more. These offices will make decisions about your life for years to come. So get educated on the candidates. We've made it easy with our Voter's Guide at kcbd.com. There you'll find bios, candidate Q&A, and much more. Then remember to go to the polls and make your choice be heard.
Don't be silent. Because silence will only endorse everyone else's choice.
