He's the man who leads the prosecution of suspected criminals in Lubbock County. And now, Matt Powell wants to continue seeking justice but he needs your vote.
Tuesday morning, Powell announced his candidacy for District Attorney. Powell is currently the acting DA. He was promoted from Assistant D.A. when Governor Perry appointed former D.A. Bill Sowder to the bench for the 99th State District.
"I've tried 200 plus criminal cases. I've tried almost every murder that's happened in Lubbock County over the last 7-8 years, I like the hard cases. I like being the voice of the underdog, and the voice for the victims," Powell said.
It appears Powell will have some competition come election time. Attorney Tommy Turner is expected to announce his candidacy Wednesday.
