Stopping the governor from carrying it out a justice department attorney argued into hearing monday that the governor was unlawfully creating his own quote immigration regime. Usurping the federal government Brandon did the governor really think this was going to fly or was this just more red meat for the conservative base in reelection campaign. You know it's a good question making a little bit. Both is clear that the governor is trying to play to the right here and it's been a pretty consistently home to tune by the governor and his office but Obviously there were also issues. Here that the governor would like to be able to put back into texas camp they wanna be able to stay there insurance immigration policy because that lets them have more control over what happens and that gives them a political issue but to be honest even in losing the issue. They can still win politically because to show that they are taking on the federal government. Let's the base note that day care about the issue. Even if they don't win her animals.

It is not expected to pass It's a response of course to state legislative efforts including voting bill blocked at the last minute during the regular legislative session here in texas which critic say would set limits on voter access in that of course was a response to what harris county did last election cycle with drive thru voting expanded early voting hours and sending out mass mailings with applications for mail in balloting. What would you like to see done or not done for that matter. When it comes to voting. More than anything.

"And and this will be done the same. But you have to engineer the entire scope of you think maybe thirty six on thinking prompt thinking, probably at least thirty six million. So where would that money come from? Well, there in lies the biggest question of a mall. Now Jimmy must supposed to give money to the expo center. Must supposed to give it to Woodrow. Will you? You're not you're not going to give money to the expo center. Again, let's reiterate not one trying to get some private money out there. Now roads roads will will probably by necessity of force us to go back to the to the people of Lubbock county and say, look, here's our plan. And and I do think I think the people of Lubbock county are really good if they know that you've got a plan that you are going to work the plan, and it's going to be long term to meet the needs of Lubbock county for the next again twenty five thirty years that we're just not going to put bandaids on roads. Like we've done. We've we've just and you know, you drive down any of our county roads that have had a lot of traffic. I tell you where I live. I live in the county. I I don't live in the city of Lubbock. I in fact, I'm the first county judge in almost one hundred years to actually live outside of the city limits of loving, and so I'll I'll. Tell you county roads are very important to me because that's where I live. I live on a county road. And so I wanna make sure that our county roads are well taken care of. But I also know that roads are a vital to our economy. They are farmers. Gotta get their goods in and out of these fields. Our roads are vital to our to our education because we we've gotta get our kids to and from schools, and you know, every time we've got a bad weather day. You know, the school system comes out and says, I we're going to start late but buses can only run on the pavement, you know, things like that. So I I've got to make sure that our roads are are in good shape. Because it's it's it goes directly to our economic development. It goes to our education. It goes to. Our safety our sheriff's department, our EMS units, if they can't get to you know, you call nine one one and our in our EMS can't get to you. Because the roads in disrepair, you're going to die. And so I would definitely wanna make sure that our roads are in good shape, simply because of the public safety aspect of it. So an an, and I do think the people of Lubbock county will see it that way. They'll see that this this is this touches all of us. And it's very important for us in this county to make sure that are we are you talked about Cooper being the third fastest growing district in Texas. Lubbock county is is a high growth county as well. I think a dozen people a day. Well, we're looking at the census numbers we took the census in two thousand we're gonna take another one here in twenty twenty. And it's likely that our population has increased twenty five. Percent from from twenty two thousand two twenty twenty twenty five percent. We've got twenty five percent more people coming in and moving to end win. They're moving to Lubbock county. A many of them are moving out into our rural areas are are small towns like I and and shallow water booming. So is this in accredit, Chris with this question is this the precursor to a big roads bond package that you're gonna look at the target areas. Based on the work that the county is done in a master plan included with Cooper to put together a package for boaters to consider in the next year. Again, I if we do, and and that'll that's not just up to me, but the entire Commissioner's court. If we do it will be comprehensive..

What did they do? Let's see I I'll I'll need to kind of walk this delicately. It's I I'm in a position right now as as county judge that it would not be prudent for me to speak on this. Okay. But I'll say the these issues are going to be ongoing. And if you do have an issue, please con- you can contact the the bankruptcy court. And I would I would suggest you go there because this is this is going to be a long time to solve. Yeah. I think I think we're looking at probably the next at least two and a half years before they'll be able to kind of unravel all this. And then try to make some people whole I don't think anybody as an individual will ever be whole because of this. But we'll see what happens, but this is going to affect Lubbock in its economy for for a while. Good question. Eric let's move over to what BJ and others are talking about. And that's roads in Lubbock county is in I got I'm gonna speak from two different camps here. The roads in a lot of roads people complain about our in south Lubbock far south loving, we call. That's that's what people might call. It Lynn county. Well, that's where our high growth has been. And of course, you know, we're we're talking about the if you look at from school district. It's Cooper school district friendship school district those are high growth soldiers, and there's a lot of housing that's being built on. Then you've got some discrepancy from inside lupin outside the loop. I think what I hear inside the loop is where was the impact study on all these two lane roads that should be five lane roads. Even people live in central Lubbock whenever they go out far. South are amazed at these tiny two lane roads with potholes d three feet into the shoulder. But at the same time, you know, there's this, you know, we kind of have like a farmer ethic in west Texas, a lot of times of well, you decided to move there. And you knew with the roads look like that's number. One and Woodrow road comes up number one there. I wanted to get into the particulars. But on the whole where was the impact study whenever all this growth was underway. And where is a master plan in has anything changed since you've come to the hill. When I was elected, of course, finally elected after the runoff in may. And I knew that I would be the next Lubbock county judge because I was unopposed on the November ballot started meeting with with the folks in Lubbock county kinda see where we're at..

"But you are also you have a docket of probate guardianship and mental health cases that all come to your court. And so I've been spending quite a bit of time just in the last couple of days just working on the judicial matters of this court taking care of those issues as well. So it is a it's a bifurcated job it. It's part administrative and part judicial, and so it's it's it's quite interesting to kind of bounce from from one issue to the other going to one meeting running to this administrative part and then turning around and doing as mental health hearings, and and and guardianship hearings and probate hearings all within sometimes the same our. So it's a it's a great job. And I'm so looking forward to really get into it and get my hands dirty into it and serving the people up counting. This is. So your day four right now. Work on New Year's day. Well, no sworn in. Well, we got sworn in on New Year's day. And what a great event that was it was we had a little over two hundred people show up to the courthouse on on New Year's day myself was sworn in we had two new commissioners that were sworn in. We had several of our district court judges, and our and our an account court law. Judges were all sworn in many of those were of course, reelected as some were elected. We had two new Justice of the pieces that does justices of the peace that were elected brand new. And so it's a it was a great great day and to be able to do that publicly in front of friends family.

"That's the way that you can get into the program as we roll along here with the judge on the Good Friday here. So here's what I wanna do. I wanna talk about some issues. And get you to talk from your judge chair about it. And also wouldn't talk about the job. And then we've got some some judge scenarios for you that we're going to give see now judges judgment on. But first of all I was talking to folks on the way back from Amarillo, and I literally like just walked in ten minutes ago. But on the phone with folks in still confused about what your job is. Because county judge in Texas has a lot of variation in not just in Texas, but even from county to county in Texas, depending on which county you're in and how that county operate in some cases, you're the superintendent that's right in in some of the smaller counties, I think under three thousand you're the superintendent of the school system in that county and the county judge and the judge, but it all goes under county judge. That's exactly. Right. But you are in a larger county here. I think folks are I say urban county. Well, you know, say that reticently, but yet let me tell you the the terminology. I've been using and fill free to adopt it if you want to we are an urban city Lubbock, the the city of Lubbock, it is a urban city. We are if you take away the suburbs of of Dallas and Houston, we are the ninth largest city in Texas. Plus, we are the eighteenth largest county in Texas. So we're not quite eaten in that top ten area as far as county goes. So we're we're still very much a rural county. We are we we are still rule west, Texas. So we're we're not quite urban. We're not quite rule were Ruben. And so we're Aruban coun- Ruben, so please feel free to use that term. Well, I always say that Lubbock is. The the deception in Lubbock is that their cattle category gates round the city that will keep the bad from the surrounding from coming in. Also keeps the good from within Lubbock. It keeps the good going out. There is no cattle guard gate. So I would think as account it's it's affirming to me from somebody who focuses from a rural vantage point is. I'll look at state politics to hear the county judge of Lubbock say, you know, Ruben because you do have to be interested in what your cohorts other county. Judge officials Manley's are dealing with. But because you could very easily be dealing with saying things while we have urban issues in the city of Lubbock. Plus, you know, of course, we have a large. Tier one power five conference university right here in Lubbock. And so you know that and that brings the the city issues into into focus as well. We are we are a very large city. But we also, you know, not only do we have a large city, but we have some great rule communities. You know, even you know, shallow water and Slayton an idol new and new deal Abernathy hill that up there. But I threw in the new deal. That's that was that was for my kin, folks. Okay, about you're just taking the dig Abernathy while I sometimes do go ahead. Just 'cause now, but we've got some incredibly great rule communities within our urban. You know geographic area. So the county judge represents all of that. And that and that's really a beautiful part of this job. It's it's it's to be able to look at the whole county in our county. Commissioners are the managers of this kind of the four county commissioners that we have that that that are working within their precincts. And they manage this county and the county judge has that unique opportunity to kind of do what I think some people call that the thirty thousand foot view to be able to see the whole county the needs of all of us here in Lubbock county. And so it it's very unique role. And that's the administrative part, and that's not even counting because we're Lubbock county. And the way we do things in the way things are set up in Lubbock county. It's also the majority of the job is judicial as well. And so it it is that by majority. Yeah. The majority of the job is judicial you are you are the administrative head of Lubbock county..
