He has held the elected position since 1998, and Lubbock County Judge Tom Head said he wants another term. 

In announcing his candidacy, Head told supporters the Commissioners Court has a reputation of working well together, with all the county's departments, and with the city. Head said while Texas has been spared tough economic situations that other parts of the country are experiencing, that cannot be taken for granted. 

"I'm not an an economist and I'm not a prophet," Head said. "I don't prophesy, but a lot of stuff still could come into Lubbock, and I would like to be in office to try to repel that to the benefit of the citizens for Lubbock and Lubbock County."

Head wrapped up his re-election announcement by urging citizens to pray for all elected leaders. Then, he added a note to the media. 

"There's not going to be a question and answer period, and I'm not doing interviews, okay?" Head said. "So, if you want to interview some of these guys, the sheriffs are back there, one of the commissioners are back there, my emergency management coordinator's back there. You want to talk to them, fine."

So far, no other candidates have announced they intend to run for county judge in the GOP primary.
