LUBBOCK, TX -- Local leaders of the Democratic Party on Friday chose Max R. Tarbox, as their nominee to appear on the November ballot to replace Charles Perry as the District 83 Representative for Lubbock and several nearby counties.  Perry - the current office holder - stepped aside from the District 83 race in order to run for State Senate.
Kenny Ketner, Lubbock County Democratic Chair, said, “We are pleased to announce that Mr. Tarbox will be our candidate in this important race for the Texas legislature. Max comes from deep West Texas roots, and has a distinguished record in business and as a local attorney.”
Tarbox will face Republican candidate Dustin Burrows who was chosen by local Republican leaders on Friday to fill the ballot on the GOP side.
