Chadis announces for District 1

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Juan Chadis announced his campaign for Lubbock City Council on Tuesday. Chadis is running for the District 1 seat currently held by Victor Hernandez.

Hernandez is now running for Mayor, leading to a special election to fill his council seat.

Chadis says if he's elected, business development will be one of his priorities.

"Commerce on the north side of town, District 1, not much commerce going on there," Chadis said.  "Most of the businesses concentrated on the south side.  Again, let us get our fair share of the pie."

Frank Gutierrez is also running for the District 1 seat.

The city council election is May 7.
