LUBBOCK, TX -- Frank Gutierrez of Lubbock will challenge current District 1 City Councilman Victor Hernandez. Gutierrez sent a notification to the local media on Monday morning. He said his formal announcement would be Wednesday, 10:00 am, in City Hall.

On Facebook Gutierrez said, “Lubbock needs a leader that will work to enhance all the prospects for all residents and businesses in District 1.” He continued, “This can be accomplished with a council member that will eliminate divisive politics - those days are over.”

Hernandez was the subject of a failed recall election late last year. At the time he said he would run for re-election.
