Midland City Councilman Taking His Shot for Seat in Congress
MIDLAND, TX -- Midland city councilman J. Ross Lacy has announced that he will be running for congress.
According to CBS 7, on August 8 Lacy officially entered into the race for the seat in the 11 Congressional District of Texas.
This is coming just a week after Congressman Mike Conaway announced that this will be his last term.
“Like the hard-working residents of the 11th District, I am deeply concerned with the partisan infighting in Washington and the direction in which our country is headed,” said J.Ross Lacy. “We need a Representative who will stand up to the radical socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Nancy Pelosi, and pass policies that ban sanctuary cities, build the wall, and unleash our economy. I am running to ensure our Texas communities are safe from the crisis on the Southern border. Drugs and crime are flooding through the border, putting our neighborhoods at risk, while the Democrat majority pushes for open borders and amnesty.”
Lacy is currently that District 4 councilman for the City of Midland and has been in the council since 2014.
