New Lubbock City Council Members Sworn In

Linda DeLeon and Phyllis Jones were both sworn in to the Lubbock City Council Tuesday morning.

District One voters chose DeLeon to fill the seat left vacant by Victor Hernandez. Meanwhile, Jones defeated four other candidates in the District Four race after Frank Morrison decided not to run for re-election.

On Tuesday morning, Morrison took the time to thank his former constituents. "I really do appreciate the support the citizens have given me. I appreciate the experience and I can honestly say the last four years have been four of the most growing years," said former City Councilman Frank Morrison.

Mayor Marc McDougal and Jim Gilbreath were also sworn in Tuesday morning. The District Two City Council seat will be decided in a run-off between incumbent T.J. Patterson and Floyd Price. The run-off takes place June 26th.
