LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Seven people took out election packets from Lubbock City Hall on Tuesday, which was the first chance to do so for the 2012 municipal election. Mayor Tom Martin; Councilman for District 4, Paul R. Beane; Councilman For District 2, Floyd Price; and Municipal Judge Robert Doty all took out packets for re-election.

Glen Robertson took out a packet to possibly challenge Martin, but Robertson says he's still not sure he will run. He has until March 5th to decide if he'll run in the May 12th election.

Randy Sanders took out a packet for District 6, the seat now held by Jim Gilbreath, who will not seek re-election.

Jim Gerlt took out a packet to possibly run against Beane in District 4.

In a separate but related development, Councilman Todd Klein will not challenge Martin in the Mayor's race.  It was not  a well-kept secret among political insiders that Klein was considering a challenge.

Council Members Klein, Victor Hernandez, and Karen Gibson are not up for election in 2012.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 and KCBD.com will provide candidate profiles as we get closer to election day.
