Mayor Comments on First 100 Days on the Job

Monday marked day 101 on the job for Lubbock Mayor Tom Martin. In his first 100 days, he expressed pride in the accomplishments he and the new council have made. 

"We've awarded the contract on the Lake Alan Henry Pipeline Project and that's underway. The animal shelter project, we've kind of gone back to square one. On the Visitor Center, we're looking at other alternatives other than the planned expenditure of $6 million for a new visitor center. We've just announced a few weeks ago one of the most significant projects for the future of Lubbock and the South Plains and that's the new Wind Power Project with the West Texas Municipal Power Authority and Texas Tech and Republic Power out of Dallas," said Martin.

Also during this first 100, two members of the City's executive staff, including City Attorney Anita Burgess have resigned for other jobs in Texas.
