Two-term HD 83 incumbent Charles Perry is being challenged in the Republican primary by Steve Massengale, president of the Lubbock Independent School District Board of Trustees. It’s been rumored but now it’s official.
Evidently Massengale’s decision to run is more about his own view of being committed to public service rather than any strong opposition to Perry or his positions. It’s early, so we will see if that remains the case as the campaigning gets underway.
Perry, a CPA and TSCPA member, has received support from TSCPA-PAC in past elections.
