LUBBOCK, TX -- The Lubbock City Council on Wednesday morning chose Chad Weaver as the sole finalist for job of City Attorney. Weaver will take over the job Sam Medina left behind in March amid allegations of sexual assault. Medina insisted he is innocent and the allegation stems from a bitter divorce between his son and estranged daughter-in-law.

In the meantime Mitch Satterwhite has been the interim City Attorney. Satterwhite did not seek the job on a permanent basis.

The City of Lubbock issued the following statement Wednesday:

Today the City Council voted 7-0 to name Chad Weaver the sole finalist for the City Attorney position.

Mr. Weaver has served as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of Lubbock since 2007. Previously, he worked for thirteen years for the City of Midland, most recently as the First Assistant City Attorney. His other experience includes serving as a Midland Municipal Court Associate Judge and working in a private law firm. Mr. Weaver was honored as the Texas Assistant City Attorney of the Year in 1999 by the Texas City Attorneys Association.

Mayor Glen Robertson said the City Council is pleased to announce its sole finalist.

“We made a terrific decision today. The City Council has the utmost confidence in Mr. Weaver’s abilities, and looks forward to Chad bringing his years of municipal law experience into the position. I also want to thank Mr. Satterwhite for the great job he’s done as interim.”

Mr. Weaver is a Lubbock native, who grew up in College Station. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Baylor University and received his law degree from the Baylor University School of Law.

“I am deeply honored by the City Council’s decision,” said Mr. Weaver. “I look forward to working with them and continuing to work with the great staff we have in the City Attorney’s Office.”

The City Council is expected to make their decision final at the next Council meeting on May 8.
