Citizens Ask Mayor For Action

Monday, Lubbock's new Mayor brought back an old way of doing business. He calls it a grass roots style of meeting one-on-one with citizens.

When we asked Mayor Miller for an interview, he declined, saying "Mayor's Night In" was all about listening. We did speak with other residents who told us some of their concerns they're hoping the Mayor will not only listen to, but take action on as well.

Concerns varied from development, to money, to the quality of life issue.  One citizen wanted more parks on the North side of town, another asked for money to revitalize the East side, and another wanted to attract retirees from major metro areas to retire here in Lubbock.  And each person we spoke with, appreciated the one-on-one time they got with Mayor David Miller.

Angelo Ansley said, "he started off on the right track, the best way to get the public behind you and keep them behind you."  

Leo Flores said, "he listened to me very well, it's what I want in a mayor."

The citizens we spoke with were happy to have an open ear, but now, they're hoping to see some results. 

If you have something you'd like to discuss with the Mayor, just call the city and make an appointment. The "Mayor's Night In" meetings will be held every third Monday of the month.  They go from 6-9pm, and each person will get about 15 minutes to discuss a topic.
