Provided by Glen Robertson for Mayor
Glen Robertson will announce his candidacy for Mayor of Lubbock at a press conference Thursday, February 2 at 11 a.m. at The Cactus Theater (1812 Buddy Holly Avenue).
Robertson plans to discuss his campaign platform on major City issues, including rising debt, continued deferral and financing of routine maintenance, and truth in taxation. "I know I am fortunate to live and work in Lubbock, but we do have our share of problems that must be addressed," said Robertson. "My campaign will focus on solutions to the issues we need to address and my profound belief in the necessary traits our leaders must possess in order to move us in a new direction."
A Lubbock native himself, Robertson and his wife Karen raised their four children in the Hub City. At the age of 19, Robertson started his first business in Lubbock and currently owns and operates three successful Lubbock businesses which employ more than 60 people. Throughout the last 18 years, Robertson has served on two separate school boards, the Ransom Canyon City Council and numerous appointed boards and commissions. He is currently a member of the City of Lubbock Electric Utility Board.
"It is time for us to roll up our sleeves and work together as an entire city to form a vision for Lubbockʼs future because we cannot afford to stay on the same path another two years," said Robertson. "In order to do this, we need to elect leaders who possess honesty, integrity, courage and vision. Lubbock desperately needs a Mayor with these qualities. I am uniquely qualified to provide these leadership traits."
