LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Victor Hernandez and Karen Gibson both defended their city council seats on Saturday, but District 3 is headed for a runoff.

Hernandez won with 51 percent of the vote. Gibson won with 63 percent, but District 3 was very close, with no candidate receiving the required 50 percent plus one vote.

Deanne Clark got 38.56 percent. Jeff Griffith got 33.31 percent and Maurice Stanley got 28.12 percent.

Two Lubbock school districts will be moving ahead with expansion plans as Frenship and Lubbock-Cooper ISD both won approval for their bond proposals.

The Frenship measure passed with 60.87 percent of the vote. Lubbock-Cooper's passed with 61.46 percent.

Frenship ISD will receive an $85.2 million bond, most of which will be spent on a new 9th grade center and an 8th grade elementary campus. The district will also purchase security and technology upgrades.

Lubbock-Cooper's $55 million bond will be dedicated to building new classrooms, mostly at the high school. The entire district will also see maintenance improvements.

Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson ran unopposed in this election. He was declared the official winner at this week's city council meeting.
