LUBBOCK, Texas -

Karen Gibson, current council woman for District 5 announced her candidacy for county judge. 

Gibson started her first term on Council in 2010 and is currently in her second term. She said she is committed to finishing her time on Council, but feels after six years she is ready to take on a new role. 

"It's a great time for me to move on, move up. I have a great relationship with the city, I have a great relationship with the mayor, with the Council," Gibson said. "I think there are so many things that they do here at the county, that it's just, just the way they've always done it. I think new approaches need to be brought, I think everything needs to be looked at. How can we do better?"

Gibson is the first to announce her candidacy.
