Bill McCay won the race for County Commissioner Precinct One. NewsChannel 11 was able to interview him on Tuesday night after his big win.
How does it feel to be back for another four years?
"I'm excited. I'm just ecstatic, it's great," said McCay.
You have taken many hits from your opponent for not being a true conservative and for the recent tax increase, obviously the majority of the voters didn't agree, but for those who did, how do you plan to prove them wrong?
"Most folks that I've had issues with understood what we're doing and transitioning into the new jail. We did everything we could to avoid a tax increase, and transitions into the new jail we are going to have both of those facilities open for most of the year and folks understood that. I got a lot of positive feedback for what we are doing in Lubbock County," said McCay.
Now that McCay is able to get right back to business what issues are you focusing on right now?
"Well above or beyond the jail we got a lot of work in progress with the county, we got county road improvement going on right now. We are addressing the growth in the county. We widened Woodrow and we are in the process of widening Indiana Avenue so we got a lot of county infrastructure that we are trying to improve to make it safer for the parents and students traveling out on these county roads," said McCay.
