District Two Candidates Prepare For June 7th Election

With the run-off election on June 7th, Armando Gonzales and Floyd Price are working down to the wire to get your vote. The candidates were asked their top three issues. Gonzales said that water conservation, economic development, and working against drugs and crimes. Price said that water conservation, increasing public safety, and building more in east Lubbock are his top three. 

With some similar standing issues, Price says that what distinguishes him from his opponent is experience. 

"Since 1966, I've worked for the citizens of Lubbock as a police officer for 30 plus years and of course as a council person for the last four years," said Price. 

Gonzales says if people are unhappy with the last four years then they should vote for a change.

"I want to debate the issues and I will not take credit for other people's work.  I am a teacher interested in people growing, not putting them in jail," said Gonzales. 

One thing both candidates agree on is the importance of voting and voter turn-out. 

"This runoff is in district two is super important because you're talking about how the city is going to be in the next four, five, 10, 15 years," said Price. 

"If they want new people at city hall then they have to get out and vote because I'm not going to get there by myself. I need people's help.  I need people's vote," said Gonzales. 

Early voting ends Tuesday June 3, and the run-off election is Saturday June 7.
