LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Dr. Jennifer Wilson announced her candidacy for election to represent District 5 for the Lubbock City Council Friday.

“As an officer of our Regency Park neighborhood association and as a doctor I have been fortunate to meet all kinds of people in Lubbock,” she said. “Over and over, they say we can do better in city government. I agree and want to help refocus the city on effectively delivering essential services.”

A pediatric physician, Dr. Wilson said she will strive to maintain Lubbock’s small-town values while strengthening public safety, supporting small business, encouraging growth and development, and improving city infrastructure. She added that she opposes vaccine and mask mandates.

“We are passionate about this community and that is why I want to make a bigger difference as a council member,” Dr. Wilson said. “When elected, I will strive to lead with integrity and passion and to work tirelessly to secure the future of Lubbock.
