Website Launched for George W. Bush Library to be at Texas Tech

If you would like to see the George W. Bush Presidential Library placed in Lubbock, you can now voice your support online. David Miller, chairman of the effort, announced the launch of a new web-site Monday. wlibrary.com will provide progress reports and a forum for you to show support.

Miller says Texas Tech is the ideal place for a West Texas Presidential Library. Tech officials have also said land on campus will be donated to the library.

Monday's announcement is one of many Monday afternoon updates in the weeks leading up to the September 15th proposal deadline. "We may be out moneyed, we may be out faulted, we may be out programmed, but we will not be out hearted," said Miller.

In early June Miller was appointed by Texas Tech Chancellor David Smith to chair the West Texas Coalition for the George W. Bush Library after being contacted by the White House.

Miller also announced members of the steering and finance committees. City Councilman Jim Gilbreath, former congressman Kent Hance, and Bush family friends Mike and Nancy Weiss are among the members. For more information and a link to the web-site (click here).
