Dist. 84 Candidate Morgan calls Isett resignation irresponsible

Posted by Ben Lawson - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) Texas House District 84 could have a new representative sooner than expected.  On Friday, KCBD told you that outgoing State Representative Carl Isett announced he would vacate his seat early. 

Isett says he'll resign effective May 31st. That's seven months early. 

Isett says he wants to give the new South Plains' representative every possible advantage, which means Republican John Frullo and Democrat Carol Morgan may need to start campaigning soon for a special election.

Saturday, Morgan announced she'd run in a special election, but called it unnecessary and irresponsible. 

"It is a waste of tax payer money. It's a political stunt. The real election is in November. Elections happen every two years. Special elections occur only when an office holder dies or moves up," Morgan said. 

Isett says he will give his official resignation letter to Governor Rick Perry soon.

Frullo could not be reached for comment on Saturday.
