Stephen Sanders held a meet-and-greet this weekend, to explain his platform for Lubbock mayor.
He says his focus is to bridge gaps.
"I really believe that there's a great opportunity for our city to grow economically," Sanders said.
"In the sight of racial barriers, I think we can really do some great things and move past that. And so, that's why I'm running, because I love all the people who live here."
His next meet-and-green will be Thursday at Picoso's Mexican Restaurant.
