Latrelle Joy announces run for Lubbock City Council

Provided by Mullin Hoard & Brown, LLP

Latrelle Joy filed an application this afternoon to become a candidate for Lubbock City Council, District 6. The seat is now held by Jim Gilbreath who announced earlier this year he would not seek reelection to the post.

Ms. Joy, a Lubbock attorney, said upon announcing her candidacy, "I love this City. I have lived here for almost 50 years, raised my kids here, and practiced law here. I believe I have the qualifications, experience and passion to serve as a member of the Lubbock City Council, and wish to make a contribution to this community which has done so much for me."

Latrelle Joy obtained her undergraduate as well as her law degree from Texas Tech University. She was an algebra teacher with LISD before devoting herself full time to raising her three children. She then attended law school at Texas Tech and upon graduation obtained her law license and started her law practice with Carr, Evans, Fouts and Hunt. Her legal career has been focused primarily in family law and commercial litigation.

Latrelle's a long-time member of the Board of Directors of Lubbock Girls Basketball, a sustaining member of the Junior League, a board member of Lubbock Rotary Club, and currently serves as a member of the Lubbock Downtown Tax Increment Finance District.

Ms. Joy has been particularly active in addressing the issue of homelessness in our community. She was appointed by the City Council to serve on the Homelessness Committee, and then asked to be a member of the United Way Homelessness Oversight Committee. "I have thoroughly enjoyed working on an issue which so dramatically impacts the lives of people suffering through hard times," Ms. Joy commented.

"I think Lubbock is the economic, cultural, educational and medical center for our region, and I want to work to make sure we take advantage of the unique opportunities this presents for our City," she concluded.

Latrelle Joy's application lists Don Nickels as her Campaign Treasurer.
