Lubbock attorney, Mark Hocker, officially announced his candidacy for the position of Judge of Lubbock County Court at Law #1, filing the necessary paperwork today in Lubbock  to run in the March 2012 Republican Party Primary election.   

"After much prayer and reflection, encouragement from family, friends, fellow Republicans and community leaders, I am pleased to announce my candidacy for Judge of Lubbock County Court at Law No. 1.  The citizens of Lubbock County deserve a qualified judge with extensive experience in criminal law who will work very hard and do honor to the great legacy left to us by Judge Rusty Ladd."

 "I am very fortunate to be supported by my wife of 15 years, Heather Hocker, and my five year old daughter, Mary Elizabeth, as well as my family and friends.  It will be my great honor to serve Lubbock County."
