LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock County Commissioner Bill McCay announced Thursday he will not seek re-election. He has held the Precinct 1 commissioner position since 2005.

Commissioner McCay said he's proud of his accomplishments, including new IT systems, road maintenance, and the expansion of Woodrow Road. He said he made his decision to not run when county voters approved the bond package for road construction back in May.

"The things that we've done and held the tax rate as low as we have," McCay said, "I think our conservative nature of the court I've been on for 15 years reflects this community."

McCay said he is considering running for higher office, as well as considering opportunities in the private sector.

McCay said former Lubbock Police Chief Greg Stevens has expressed interest in running for this office; he said Stevens is a proven leader in the community.

"I'm ready to move on from this office," McCay said during his speech, "but I want to leave it in good hands. That's why I'm excited that former police chief Greg Stevens had expressed interest in continuing public service and in running for this office."

Former Lubbock city manager Lee Ann Dumbauld has already announced her candidacy in the Republican primary for the Precinct 1 spot. She is currently finance manager at the Lubbock County Tax Assessor-Collector's Office.

Dumbauld said the county's budget process and its cuts to equipment and vehicle budgets shows poor decision making.
