They are not on board with that. They want to continue. The course that were on, and it's not gonna fix anything and ultimate thing. At the end of the day is nobody's property taxes are going down. Nobody's property taxes are going down. They may be mitigated under HP too. But it's not going down.

"Sixty percent are Jon tester style candidate lost twenty five percent to seventy five percents. But to be fair. Yeah. That wasn't just you're Bernie Sanders was in Lubbock, right? Your tester was in seven different counties. One of which was Lubbock county in that just a sliver. But the thing is is when you talk to the when you talk to the party faithful and party faithful are always the people who are going to be all the hold on. Let me just because what we're talking about his drew Landry right now. Okay. The tests candidate, right and everybody knows that that district is takes tech terrorists in it. Takes six rural counties to devastate. Right tech terraces in everybody knows anything about Lubbock. He might be listening. Suddenly tech terrorists. A lot of tech administration. A lot of tech professors much more nuanced area in just two. It's like a peace symbol. It comes down nineteenth university to Indiana intakes out like a peace symbol out on the south loop. And then takes in three counties to the west three counties to the east, right, but okay that for context go ahead to me if I'm. Lubbock county democrat. I'm not looking at sixty percent versus seventy seven because those districts are weighted in in a fashion that don't lead to the sumptious that might be being made. Well, I think that some people in Lubbock might look at this and say well are Bernie Sanders. Style candidates did so much better that where the party needs to go. I would argue that. Instead, we need to be looking at Beddoe and look at how Beto did statewide, and we need to be saying that here within the rural metropolis of of Lubbock we need to be fashioning a candidate that can win locally more in the style of a better Rourke, then perhaps a Bernie Sanders or Octavio always want call her Octavio detail because huge Houston Astros fan and Octavio doto tell with Astro. We'll see what whatever. I o c. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, but yeah, I would like to see us move in more of a of a moderate direction. I don't think there's any secret to that. But at the same time, I do see why there are people in within my party that are more of the far end on the left. You know, a lot of people have been getting left out in this economy and. And even then it just like, I'm literally rolling my fingers through my hair is say this. Yes, you're my head saying there are classical democratic issues public education agriculture. Yeah. Medical access to health care. Right. The classical that you could run on run on strongly unabashedly in leave the Cussing to the side leaves the flag kneeling to the side and gain a larger audience. I one hundred percent agree with that get anything else we need to get in with you how I mean. I could talk to you about politics for hours. But but no there's nothing you'd have to miss a couple of your commercial breaks or something we can with. So how often do you guys meet in? If people are interested in joining in with the Lubbock county democratic process how. How can they do? So well with any to do is they need to go to our website or you can find us on Facebook Lubbock Democratic Party on Facebook.

"We have local politicians that I don't believe are in the same class as Robert Duncan. And so therefore, it is the it is incumbent upon the local Democratic Party to hold our politicians feet to the fire and say, look when you go to a league of women voters breakfast, and you say that we don't really need to pay attention to renewable energy, for instance, when for crying out loud who said that. One of our one of our three put it that. Okay. One of our three said, we don't need to be paying attention to renewable energy fossil fuels is is where we're going to focus our attention. Okay. That's fine. But that's that's just. That stupid. I mean, Lubbock has more sunshine and more wind than probably anywhere else in the country. And why are we not going to go and pay attention to renewable energy in this area? The reason why that's important is tucked any millennial, and they're going to tell you man, my future's at stake. You people aren't paying attention to global warming and my future's at stake. And I wanna party that pays attention to environmental issues. Well, democratic party's gonna be paying attention to that. And but here locally, we're going to be holding our local politicians accountable win. They don't engage in that politics. A place, for instance, and pay attention to renewable energy here. Fossil fuels. You know, if you're down in Odessa fossil fuels are important fossil fuels aren't important in Lubbock county. That's we're the we're the pump jacks going low accounting. You don't see any what you do see your win meals, and we need to be paying attention to renewable energy here in this county. So anyway, like, I say. And I think that one primary function that we need to be engaged in is holding our legislators feet to the fire and making sure that they are engaged in politics place. The other thing is is I'm a generation xer. I'm assuming you are to somewhere in the. You know, my generation is nothing more than a placeholder for the next generation the millennials are gonna come along. And what we're seeing you. You had the the professor from tech last week that was talking about southern politics. He didn't talk about generational politics. And we were in the middle of a generational shift. Where a lot of new issues are coming up with millennials that need to be addressed. And one of the things that we need to be doing here. Locally is we need to be recruiting good candidates candidates. That are have character charisma, and competency, you might have seen Claire mccaskill have the interview on. I think it was dateline couple months ago where it was like the exit interview. And and a lot of the people in Democratic Party were pooh-pooh in her responses because she's more of a conservative democrat, and she was complaining about the Democratic Party saying we pay attention too much to identity politics, which I would agree. We do we need to get away from identity politics guards. What in what regards? Do we pay too much attention identity politics? Just speaking personally and not on behalf of the party. I was a supporter of injury white. I thought it was silly for the for the powers that be done in Austin to look at the at the ticket and go. Wow, we got a bunch of white, you know, bunch of white man on the ticket. We need to go out and get somebody who isn't a white male. Well, you know, we saw what happened with Luba Valdez just got a bum. Steer ward him, the texts monthly round of the poorest run campaigns. But still within thirteen points, and I will concur with you there chairman why? Still within thirteen points. She still came within thirteen points at sixteen points. Well, no, I mean, she got trounced by thirteen points, L K. Well compared to Wendy Davis. It's pretty good. I mean, that's my standard there. That's a last serious quote unquote serious candidate. And I appreciate you corrected me..

"Have on the air with us. John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chairman people take offense to. Democrats being called democratic they to say, the Lubbock county democrat party talked to us about parlance there. I have no idea where that comes from people. Tell me that Rush Limbaugh is the one that started that I'm old enough. I remember the world before Rush Limbaugh. And and back whenever I was in college, the professors would complain about that sort of thing. I don't I really complain that it should be called democratic or democrat both. Okay. Because unlike what a lot of Republicans believe when you go to college, and you're in the political science department. They aren't all raving liberals, you've got conservatives in the political science departments to and I would have conservative professors that would insist that you call it democrat, and I'd have liberal professors, call it democratic you insist on just whatever comes out of my mouth grad democratic I get some of my some people will will correct me at times because I happen to make the mistake of saying. Democrat at times, but democratic Democratic Party. I I don't say democrat party at that sounds kind of silly. I would say Democratic Party. I mean, but it's it's semantic quibbles. I don't I don't get caught up in those kinds of games. Yeah. Okay. So I tried to get you caught up in that game. But you stiff arm there, John Gibson. But you are an attorney sure. Yep. Okay. What do you practice worker's comp? Okay. So guys mostly guys getting injured out in the oilfield. I've got an office. No Desa, and I spent a lot of time out. No Desa, but I love Lubbock. And this is where we raised our family, and this is where I wanna live. But yeah, the injuries the work is out in out in the oilfield. So so, but also you run out of DFW as well from time to time. Yeah, I've got an office in Fort Worth too. So okay. That to say, we don't have just some schlumpy sittin here. You know, it's not like it's not like there's a guy who just ran for Democratic Party chair who doesn't really do anything. I mean, you're an accomplish your accomplished within your profession. I'm. I'm blessed to have good clients that have given me some good cases and had some good success with that. So what's the way forward? John. Are we going to see the Democratic Party because you know, I say this all time we rave on in the program in always say, I'm non adherent. I'm not a devout adherent, I vote Republican, but I'm not a devout adherent to either party. And I think a lot of people listening program. I'm thirty nine people who are younger than me who if we go through and we look at the demographics and who's listening to the podcast. I think it'll show that the not devout adherents either in. I think a lot of people are wondering what this Lubbock county Republican party do. Now, we can critique Beto all day long. But in day moss by less than three points. Does the Lubbock county Democratic Party look that is cute run further to the left. Or run more to the middle. You know, I don't know with respect to the state party. I can tell you that here locally. I think that one of the reasons why I got elected was because I am more of a moderate. And I think that we were elected win. I think June. I think okay. So this is before all the November hullabaloo area. Yeah. But anyway, yeah. Here. Locally the problem that we have is. We've got thirty percent versus seventy percents. I mean, that's just the fact and we can slowly over time road that thirty percent or erode the seventy percent and gain numbers off the thirty percent. But what the Democratic Party here is primarily right now as a watchdog for the Republicans. And so yeah, I want to see my Republican legislators do well because I live in this community. And I like you I'm somebody who believes in the politics of place, and I want my Republican legislators to have success for the south plains. You know, Bob Duncan. I know Bob Duncan. He's a he's a good guy thought he did a really really good job state Senator is pointed at his campaign side. Yeah, you've got you've gotta sign here. There were times when I disagreed with what Senator Dunkin might have have, you know, legislated. However, I appreciated the fact that he was a statesman..

"There's things like I know that millennials like to drop f bombs right and left, and it's cool for a millennial to do that sort of thing. But you know, it doesn't cost you votes to clean up your language. You don't lose anything. But you see that more as a liability to him than the flag stands prompted when you're only talking about losing by three percent. Every little thing counts. You know, you're talking about something with the flag that might have been a a a it's one of the things that you're gonna make a break you, and I don't think you're gonna get a whole bunch of Republicans to go and say, oh, you know, what I'm gonna vote for Beto. Because now he's or because he's taking a position with the fruits of the flag that I like that's the hard core. Okay. You're talking about the interest people. I think for the interest people you get some little a lady in Arlington, Texas, for instance, who's about. To be in a nursing home. And she hears this drop an f-bomb. She may like him. She may go boy, he looks like like, you know, Bobby Kennedy, and I like that guy. But then he says something that offends her will then she's not gonna vote for it or maybe post. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Pose? And and that's just sit you got west of I thirty five where he struggled. I think there are some people within the Democratic Party who look at it and go, well, he didn't get enough Hispanics out. Well, okay. Yeah. That may be one factor too. There are all kinds of different things that could put him over that three percent fresh oil. No, no one single factor. Did it for him? But there are a number of things could have tweet. My view is Hettie tweaked that children fit four county tour and heady cleaned up his language a bit. It would have helped me to make the case for him with with my contact with the people that I regard well in the circles that I run if you've got somebody who's out there dropping f bombs it gets really really hard to go to church and say, hey, this is this is the guy you need to be supporting people are turned off by that. Even though they may like the message, even though they may like a lot of the things he saying it's hard to get over things like that. Yeah. So John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chair. He came in this role. How John e been here since ninety three. So a lot of millennials. You could say I've been here longer than you've been alive. Yeah. But you came in. Roll hal. I sometimes question that myself. I have always been politically active in the sense that in the local people here know this. I was the youngest person ever elected to a countywide office in the Harris County GOP Harris County Republican party that was back when I was in college, my wife, and I were married at the time. When did you get elected to I was the I was on the candidate selection committee. Okay. So like, we've got this guy that we recruited run for district judge there in Harris County that he went on to become attorney general, and and you may know him, Greg Abbott. He's now in the governor's office. You know, that's one of our recruits Ted POE who was recruited for run for judge. And then he was congressman Dan Crenshaw just took his place. I think I'm I'm terrible with names in Crenshaw thinks dozen the patch cabbage. Anyway, did that head sort of a falling out in the sense that? It's the same thing everywhere. I think with the GOP too far to the right? They get a little bit. Theocratic all or you know, you get into these kinds of things where it's just pretty hateful and ugly. And I didn't like that. Anyway, came up here for law school American meal, shoe gal, and she insisted that we come here for law school and bought a house. And so that tied to Lubbock to where I wasn't going to leave and my wife has happy with that. And then in the meantime, I really wasn't really excited about the Republican party here in town because it seemed to be the same way what I'd encountered in Houston and was voting democrat democratic because that was where my values seem to be going..

"In studio with us. We have John Gibson in. He is the Lubbock county democratic chairman preciado him making time to come out with us here. John gibson. Your your debut here on the show, tell us how your I'm doing good. I was on the road yesterday. And I missed your show has Daniel the millennial gut near the new digital studio. Or is he he's working on his working on? It is em- process right now some things to do in and out. Appreciate you checking on the progress of the show Daniel is in process, and if he's listening let that be motivation to Daniel that listeners are wondering what your progress is you got the ipad over there. Yeah. I need some the second generation. I have no third. I have no idea. I think it's the second. Yeah. I'm terrible with names. And so it helps if I've got notes. Yeah. You got twelve inch. That's when I run the program off of okay? Yeah. Got mon. But I got it in the a defender there. There by author box because I don't have young children or you don't have young children. I do so. Okay. So there there's a point of mutual concern. John weather people going to do let me give you my breakdown. My breakdown is that in you, disagree with me as you may. I think if Beddoe Rourke had not taken some unprompted unnecessary stances. He could have become the next you Senator now people read into in because he lost by less than three points. If he hadn't taken the stand that he did on the flag and kneeling at the flag. Then I think that he could had a lot more people come his way. But that was easy Pickens. Ted Cruz ran as ruthlessly in west Texas in rural regions of west Texas during Sunday night football, Monday night football of a a veteran who. Lost his legs stand for me. Stand. For me took a lot of cues that made me wonder is running for president as a run running for Senate. But we're guardless of that he still lost by less than three percent. I would think that as a chairman of an I'm just gonna say, you're chairman of the eleventh largest county in Texas. What your folks feel like in what you alike is the way forward, they're given the progress unprecedented progress since the state went Republican well first off I think there's a difference between what Beto did. And what some of our local candidates did. I mean, we gotta be honest locally. We didn't do probably as well as we would have wanted to given the fact that but oh made the showing he made you talked about Beddoes success or lack thereof barely missing out. I don't think there's ever any one thing that causes a politician to lose an election. There's usually multiple factors. I have complained some about this with respect to bed. Oh, I think that had he done what what's called the hero's journey. You do hauteur and fifty four county tour and got all these different counties. And then you come out of it, a new person you come out of it. And you say, well, I visited the cotton farmers in lamesa. And I learned this about. About this. And so now, here's my new policy point on this or I went to the timber farms and east, Texas, the sawmills, or whatever you come out of that. And you change your policies somewhat. You don't have to change a great deal, but you change somewhat that would have been beneficial. I don't think the the whole standing for the flag, and that sort of thing, I think that that would have cost him votes on the democratic side had he changed positions on something like that. But the chain. That's my question though. Joe that's just he didn't change. No. He took an unprompted stance. Right. And it it excited a lot of people. I don't think you can fault him for that. I think there's there's a lot of people on our side that were really invigorated by his stance. But I'm saying that had he gone and taking a taken a stance after doing his two hundred fifty four county tour where he says okay now, for instance, I'm gonna go ahead and vote for the farm Bill, even though the rest of democratic colleagues aren't vote for the farm Bill, for instance, that might have gotten him some. Or favorite west, Texas, didn't right? But he didn't. That's what I'm saying. Okay. You know, there's things like that..

Mom worse. The weekend is she's right in front of the court in big, bold hair. I'm tempted a took a picture of I'm tempted to put it up because it burned me up so much. Couple of quick notes out here. Lots of comments on that Ted Mitchell interview that I just mentioned planning on writing on it this weekend for your journal Gloag news tomorrow, there's a new Texas. It seems Democrats have a new way going forward. What's the plan in Lubbock county because this is always my gripe within the Lubbock county stalwarts on the Republican and democratic side. There's people who've been there forever who just decide. No. This is the way we gotta do things or the Lubbock county DeVos's intriguing to me. Will the Lubbock county? Democrats go into moderate and try to pick off let's say public education votes votes against a tax caps and imposing on local control. Or will they double down in trying to push a national democratic agenda in west, Texas? It doesn't seem like it would work to me. But we'll see what Lubbock county democratic chair John Gibson thinks tomorrow five fifteen at this time very candid conversation with John Gibson somebody who's very competent very well successful individual and a chair the party will hear from him from four. How about them Cowboys for judge Lee? Norman, we thank you for to Knin to this edition of the program. You can always here..

I just wanna take sixty seconds here to in this toll curb Baldy, lots of people are looking at their leases in they got leases from rigor dykes, and they don't know what to some of the I've talked to somebody yesterday bad, then number any advice judge on where do they just call the DA's? 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..

"What's well, let me tell you where we're at on that the what we passed in Lubbock county was to authorize the county to build a new venue and to use what we call the hot tax or the hotel occupancy tax to do it. We're we're at right now is that that tax is collected by the comptroller. You know, when you stay at a hotel, you pay that tax that tax money goes to the state it goes to Austin. And then Austin send you a check back. Here's here's your two percent that we collect take from fiscal. A year Ville. Yeah. And that and that's the real rub. In one of the reasons why it's really it's that's one of the reasons why we're not starting on it right now is that we've got to wait they they collect for the the quarter. So the collect the first quarter. And then before the end of the second quarter is when they reimburse or give us that much with fists so were listeners for fiscal year, which begins win well, January one. Okay. That's when the taxes started collecting January one, and we we won't see a dime of that money in Lubbock county until probably June. So that we can put some we can put some things in place to kind of get ready for that money to make sure that once it gets here that will give us a an opportunity to get started. But we've got to wait for the contrary you mandated though to build this thing. Yes. Okay. Sam you have to build it. We will we will build it. Now. I don't know how much. And that's the other thing we need to wait from the comptroller is to tell us how much money we're going to have. And then they're going to also have to give us a projection. So how much money will we have this year? How much will we have next year and the year after year after far out he'll you said four years there? But no, no. Yeah. And more because we're looking at we're looking at purchasing a probably a thirty year bond. Maybe so you have to go out and get alone. It's like if you had to go out and get a loan to build your house. They wanna know. Well, how you gonna you gonna pay us back for that? And so the loan the the the bond people wanna know how you gonna pay us back with what money, and we're say, we're gonna pay you back with this hot tax and this hot tax is going to generate X amount of dollars for the next twenty years thirty years, and that's what we're gonna pay you back with. But we can only do that. We don't have those numbers yet. Those numbers will come from the comptroller. So I don't know how much bond money were going to be able to. Get it. It could be anywhere. I think between thirty and forty million based on just the hot tax. Now, the other the the other part of that ballot. Jay was was a rental cars. So it wasn't just the hot tax. But it was also an ingredient that thing. Sorry, judge you blew it up. Well, I'm no it's on the ballot. No. But I wrote the story that that in the last Federal Aviation airline act. That's right. You can't do that. And you can't do it for projects away from the airport. And I think what happened took a lot of black is over that. But for me judge. Here's my deal. I don't I don't like acrimony. I don't like unneeded left wing unhinged. People in right-wing on in. If you conduct an election under a certain assumption in after the election people find out we'll you can't use real car. Right. That's the position. I was in in anew that this was not you couldn't. Do this anymore. So I put out the story and took some heat on it. But the on don't do this thing for political favor will people to be informed. Appreciate that. And and here's an here's the deal. So I think going forward what what I've told the bond people, and what I've told our our finance people is that let's just not count on receiving a dime of that money yet. Now, if down the line, we we get a ruling from a from the attorney general's office or some, you know, circuit court of appeals or something that says no that really doesn't apply here or because it was on the ballot..

"Ten thousand dollar loan from Strathern production company, which is an energy company in Roswell New Mexico. That's a long ways from Lubbock. There was a seventeen hundred dollar in-kind contribution from Lubbock. Charles. Quote, unquote, CJ Hargrove presumably to cover the campaigns seventeen hundred dollar yard, son, political expenditure, and then there was an in-kind contribution from Mesa media in Austin for radio and television production while no amount was specified on their campaign. Finance report four Mesa media. A Lubbock county election official says that the contribution amounts to six thousand nine hundred dollars. Now Lubbock tax payers. Four accountability political expenditures were mostly for advertising, and we have the whole campaign finance report there on the website. Now, here's the interesting part. And I said something about this yesterday. But other documents show that the packs treasurer changed on October nineteen that treasurer was Hargrove. And a new treasure was appointed by Hargrove six days later, Tony Renteria who's a big dog on social media, but doesn't like to take questions because who cares about accountability. Right. Tony Renteria you like your name being mentioned on the radio. Bet you do because it's one of the only time you'll hear it Hargrove is the nephew of former Lubbock state Representative Karl is it and Hargrove I'm told step down because he was concerned about quote, unquote. The campaign's tactics Renteria thing just said his name again, who is a very look you got to measure your words because you don't want to sound like a tyrant, but who is a very involved in by very involved. I mean, overly involved. With the Lubbock county. Republican party is also said to be a longtime. Volunteer of is it who held the state office from nineteen ninety seven to two thousand ten on Sunday night. I spoke with Carl is it and asked him if he had any involvement with the pack. He said, no. And Furthermore, they he had no knowledge of who was running the pack. His nephew informer big campaign guy. Is nephew as well. As another guy who helped him in his campaigns Corliss it saying, hey, I don't know anything about who's running that campaign that the that pack. I I don't I don't know who that is which. I think to a lot of people would be breaking news your nephews in them when you're when you're tough lieutenants. And you don't know about it. Okay. So I'll just take you cheer word there. Renteria and Hargrove did not respond to requests for comment on for this story by the time, we publish it today. Renteria I called him on Sunday evening publish this today called Hargrove yesterday. Didn't hear back from either one. Now, like, I said I've raised a question about the rental cars, and what seems to be a prohibition in this will play out in courts. So those folks have answered some hard questions because at this point, it seems to me you've got to. Two candidates up in both our packs. The. The expo people have answered the question, and they've linked some stuff. So that you can go see how they've answered the question within the piece, but the other group Lubbock tax payers, four accountability have not answered the questions, and it seems to me to be that the aforementioned person who has name I will not glorify dignify again on the radio has resisted answering even though he is heading up a pack. That says we're we to be accountable. We want to kill ability. Where's the accountability? And they are not there. And this is my my thought, and you can go to the peace other side of Texas dot com. We've got the full campaign finance report that can be viewed this fella's pack at this point. Because the other guy walked away said he didn't like the tack. Ticks, and by the way, some of you guys at Lubbock county Republican party, you need to understand that the reason that you see dwindling numbers are because guy dufuses like what you've got running this thing in shouldn't tie you to it. But do like this guy run rampant within your your party in your local county counterparty, but. If you're going to say, you want to be accountable men or your four accountability than you need to answer questions. And one of the first questions is this. How does ninety percent of contributions to your pack derive from outside far outside Lubbock county. That's my question to you. Hope you chime in hope you'll also stay with us. We just run ninety second commercial breaks here on the program keeps you involve might bazaar in studio carried a little bit over there..
