County Attorney Dennis now seeks election as District Attorney

HOCKLEY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

Hockley County Attorney Christopher Dennis will run for District Attorney, according to the Levelland & Hockley County News-Press.  The district covers Hockley and Cochran Counties. 

The News-Press also reports that current D.A. Gary Goff is not seeking re-election. 

Dennis is the man who successfully lobbied a State District Judge for the removal of Sheriff David Kinney in 2009 after two of Kinney's deputies were arrested in a federal drug bust. 

Dennis told the News-Press that, "The largest part of my career has been spent as a prosecutor; I'm very proud of that fact."
