Jarret Helps Hub City Tourism, Resigns Post

Marcy Jarrett has resigned as the Executive Director of Visit Lubbock. During her nearly five year tenure hotel tax revenue went up anywhere from 4 to 14 percent each year. The total increase was more than 48 percent.

"You can look at the numbers last 5 years the total for the city the total hotel motel occupancy tax revenue is up 48%. I don't know how that compares to other cities but to me that's a pretty good number," said Gary Lawrence with LEDA.

Jarrett will stick around long enough to help Lawrence with the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance find her replacement.
