Congratulations to the city council and school board candidates that convinced a majority of constituents they were the best person for the job.
Also congratulations to Frenship and Cooper ISD for successfully passing bond packages.
In Lubbock, City Councilman Victor Hernandez returns for another term as does Councilwoman Karin Gibson. but we will see a run-off for District 3 on June 14. Also congratulations to new Lubbock ISD trustee Laura Vinson for her successful campaign.
Turnout for this election was very low, so if you're in Lubbock City Council District 3 and you voted, make sure and vote again. Your candidate needs you.
And don't forget about the state primary runoff election on May 27. It's our duty as taxpaying citizens to voice our opinion at the polls. So exercise your right to vote. and if you don't, don't complain about the outcome.
