A Democrat has entered the race for Lubbock County Judge. 

Lubbock native Austin Carrizales said it is time to stop playing catch-up with vital services like law enforcement and road maintenance. He said he will bring a new way of thinking, a new integrity and a new emphasis on transparency to the office. 

"I would like the public to have a say," Carrizales said. "I think when you have that say, our community will trust you, and I would love for that trust to just kind of build so Lubbock County is a better place.

Carrizales recently graduated from Texas Tech's Law School and has a Master's degree from Tech in public administration. He has interned with Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar and the county's Office of Dispute Resolution. 

Carrizales said his background and qualifications bring a different perspective to the position of County Judge, which the Republican incumbent, Tom Head, has held since 1998.

At least he went to law school. Tom Head is a former cop. I'd rather have someone who actually went to law school than a lunatic cop who believes the UN is going to invade Lubbock. County Judges do not have to be attorneys because they are more of administrators than judges. Really, I just want Tom head to go. Anybody is better than he is.

How does Mr. Carrizales, who failed the bar examination by the way, intend to use a judicial office to get the community involved? Based on his platform I'd say he should run for a local legislative body and not a judicial position. But then again, who are we kidding? A Democrat isn't about to get elected in Lubbock.
