LUBBOCK, Texas (KAMC) — Are you a fan of South Plains politics? Here are your Talking Points for this week.
Most of us fared better than the rest of Texas this past week with the power outages that plagued the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) grid network. While Lubbock is currently part of the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) grid, we’ll be joining ERCOT on June 1, 2021. This week we’ll take a closer look at what we’re about to get into, and what the City of Lubbock has to say about ERCOT following the happenings of the past week.
We’ll look at what not to do if your chosen to be public servant and then decide you can’t handle the public’s problems. The now former mayor of Colorado City, Texas found himself in such a situation and became a topic of national conversation this past week.
Also, we’ll have a recap all the local, state and national political news of the past week.
Talking Points with Bryan Mudd airs Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and 10:35 p.m. on KAMC.
