Former Lubbock City Councilman to Run for State Representative

Frank Morrison is running for State Representative 83 against incumbent Delwin Jones. Morrison has filed his treasurer paperwork in order to get his campaign started.

Morrison is a former Lubbock city councilman who decided not to run for a second term for District 4. Morrison has been out of the public eye for more than a year. Since then, he got into the home improvement business. Now, he is about to make a leap of faith back into politics.

"The current leadership in Austin is having a difficult time getting their message across and reaching agreement," said Morrison.

Morrison is running for State Representative District 83, currently held by 25-year veteran Delwin Jones. "I know it is going to be an uphill battle but it is time for a fresh voice," Morrison said.

He says he decided to run as soon as Mayor Marc McDougal announced he would not be running. Also, Morrison admits he misses being on the political forefront.

"I like to think that I can help somebody serve others. That's why I'm doing this," he said.

Morrison says he's running as a Republican. He plans to file for his candidacy sometime in December.

NewsChannel 11 could not reach Jones for comment, however we do know Jones knows about Morrison's plans.
