Lubbock Reelects Mayor, Sets Public Hearing for Sanctuary City for Unborn Ordinance

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On election night, Lubbock’s incumbent mayor Dan Pope won reelection against challenger Stephen Sanders with an 11.42% margin. Additionally, the three members of Lubbock’s City Council up for reelection won their races, with Shelia Patterson Harris defeating Gordon Harris by a margin of 38.04% and Latrelle Joy defeating Kaylon Dean Northcutt by a margin of 19.46%. Steve Massengale ran unopposed.

A defining issue in the mayoral race in Lubbock was the recent return of Planned Parenthood to Lubbock. Though both Pope and Sanders had expressed pro-life views, Sanders had been a vocal supporter of the push to declare Lubbock a sanctuary city for the unborn. Pope, meanwhile, had expressed hesitation for the city to act on the issue. 

The fight to declare Lubbock a sanctuary city for the unborn is not over yet. As we reported last month, a petition supporting the move was declared valid by the City of Lubbock. During a meeting the day before the election, Lubbock’s City Council unanimously approved a resolution setting November 17th as the date of a public hearing on the issue.
