Two candidates are now preparing for a runoff in the race for Lubbock County Clerk. Kelly Pinion and Mike Arismendez both received 27% the vote. Now the winner will be decided in a run-off on April 11th.
NewsChannel 11 spoke with both candidates. Pinion says, "I've got 22 years in the county clerk's office, both as an employee and as a customer for my records research business. Basically, the voters of Lubbock need an experienced county clerk."
Arismendez says, "It is just a matter of going out and educating people on understanding the county clerk's race and what it is. I need to focus on my managerial experiences as the former Mayor of Shallowater, working with a state representative and with my current position at the city where I work with citizens every day."
