Candidates step up, drop out as filing deadlines arrive

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Several candidates announced their intention to run for office Monday and at least one dropped out, as filing deadlines arrive for 2012:

Former City Councilman Frank Morrison announced his run for Lubbock County Commissioner of Pct 1 in 2012 Monday. In a phone interview, Morris said he would make a good fit because county commissioners need to communicate better with city council. Morrison says his past experience should be able to help.

Jerry Russell announced his intention to seek the Lubbock County Libertarian Party's nomination for Lubbock County Commissioner of Pct 1. Russell said if elected he would advocate a low tax rate, frugal spending, and better maintenance of county roads.

Occupy Lubbock member Andrew McMillan announced his intention to run for Texas State House Representative in District 84. He has filed to run in the Democratic Party primary. In a statement released Monday, McMillan promised to "bring a new perspective to a disconnected Texas legislature with 21st century ideas."
