Lubbock Mayoral Candidates Square Off In Debate

All of the candidates running for Mayor of Lubbock met for a debate Wednesday evening.

While we can't bring you all of the issues covered at the event, we would like to share the highlights of the answers the candidates gave when asked about their qualifications.

David Miller said, "The style of inspiration, rather than intimidation, that I bring to the office is proven. People respond well to encouragement, and to motivation, and to reward, and I believe the long term benefits of that type of style is beneficial, just as it has been in my business career."

Gilbert Montes said, "I can bring detail and I can also bring the diversification of having worked with many people from all walks of life, to be able to work and get a long with everybody, and get information transferred back and forth, make it work for everybody in the city."

Mayor pro-tem Tom Martin said, "My career with the City of Lubbock started in 1970 when I was hired, actually to go work for the city the afternoon of May 11, 1970, and that night the tornado hit that wiped out almost a third of our city. It was a lot of experience very quickly for a 21 year old fresh out of Texas Tech with a degree in Journalism."

Ysabel Luna said, "That's the best qualification I can give you, is if you're honest, sincere and dedicated to wanting to do a good job, you can't go wrong."
