Lubbock Leaders Head To Plainview To Say Thank You

Every day people from surrounding communities drive to Lubbock to shop, eat and spend money. Tuesday, city leaders will travel to one community to say thank you. NewsChannel 11's Suleika Acosta tells us where they are scheduled to go.

Mayor Marc McDougal, city council and other city leaders will visit Plainview to show their appreciation for the business the community brings to Lubbock. They will also meet with Plainview city leaders and tour the town.

Last year the same group traveled to Clovis where they visited several tourist attractions and met with Clovis officials. Today's trip to Plainview is the fourth time Lubbock has reached out to surrounding towns to build goodwill among them. Mayor McDougal says it's a chance for Lubbock to partner with Plainview in projects that could help both communities.

"We want to go over and refresh our memory of what Plainview has, give [them] an opportunity to show off their city and show appreciation of what they do for our economy here. We are neighbors and see what we can do to help and vise versa," explains Mayor McDougal.

Besides Clovis, our city leaders have also traveled to Hobbs and Roswell last year. We're told this goodwill trip is the first of many focused on West Texas and the Panhandle.
