Mark McBrayer, Lubbock mayor candidate | Kerrville demands permit for political speech; Fort Worth discriminates based on speech – Pratt on Texas 4/19/2024

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Lubbock is facing a big mayoral election that will either further empower the tax and spenders or, will restore discipline and trust at City Hall. I talk with candidate for mayor Mark McBrayer about the issues including why big money developers are working to elect his tax raising opponent.
