LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

"I think this is a win for American democracy," said local Democrat TG Caraway.

"I think it was probably a win for both sides," local Democrat Brenda Cruze said.

"I think we are probably going to find a common ground, and we are going to continue through dialogue to find a common ground and I think this is a great first step," Lubbock County Democratic chair Stuart Williams said.

It appeared to be a great first step, as 18-local democrat leaders sat down with congressman Jodey Arrington today, for a round table discussion.

“As the proud representative of this district, that leadership is about working together to solve problems and it’s about mutual respect,” said U.S. Representative for Texas's 19th congressional district Jodey Arrington.


That's what they were able to find, a mutual respect. Even though, either side might not agree with one another. 

"On a lot of these issues, he has his position and I think he is quite wrong on a lot of them," Stuart Williams said.

"I don't think he and I agree on how to get there, but I was happy he was willing to hear where I stood," local Democrat Brenda Cruze said.

"He wants to bring back more people, and have more of these and you know that's part of his job. To sit here and listen to his constituents whether he agrees with them or not," said local Democrat TG Caraway.

After it all, Congressman Arrington had a simple message to the local democratic leaders after the discussion.

"I want to thank them, if they are watching tonight. I want to say, you made me proud to be a west Texan. You made me proud to represent this region, and to serve all west Texans regardless of party," said Congressman Jodey Arrington.
