Lubbock Liberty Hosts 2016 Lubbock Texas Mayoral And City Council Candidate Forum

The 2016 Lubbock Municipal Elections prompted Lubbock Liberty to host a Mayoral and City Council Candidate Forum on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at the Mahon Public Library. Each candidate in attendance had his or her own opportunity to address the public and answer a few questions in hopes of gaining further support to win their race. Questions and input for the forum was accepted.

The Candidates that spoke to the crowd were, in order of appearance: Sheila Patterson Harris, Dan Pope, Victor Hernandez, Todd Klein, Ysidro Gutierrez, Christopher Stevone Moore, Donald Ray "Tiger" Pratt, Jared B. Hall, Jim Gerlt, Steve Massengale, Frank Gutierrez, Ben Medina, and Juan Chadis.

Saturday, April 23, 2016
Mahon Public Library
In the Community Meeting Room
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
1306 9th Street
Lubbock, TX 79401

The mayor's chair and four seats on the Lubbock City Council were up for election on May 7, 2016. Since Glen Robertson, who was elected mayor in 2012, ran as a Republican candidate to the U.S. House in 2016, Lubbock will elect a new mayor. Four candidates filed for this race, including current councilman Victor Hernandez.

The filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was February 19, 2016. Three of the six city council positions—Districts 2, 4, and 6—are up for election. There will also be a special election for District 1 of the city council on the same day.  The filing deadline for candidates to file for that seat was March 7, 2016. A runoff election, if necessary, will occur on May 24, 2016. The elections for both Districts 1 and 2 are both open races, so Lubbock is ensured two new members of the city council and a new mayor.
