Cody West announces candidacy for JP, Pct. 3

By JOE GONZALES

Cody West announced to the Lamb County Leader-News his intent to run for Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 of Lamb County. West, who is running on the Republican ticket, now joins Rick Zinn and Tim Walker in vying for the seat currently held and to be vacated by Judge Al Mann. West said he decided to run for JP because the job is something he’s familiar with.

“I was a JP in Reeves County from 2008 until 2011 and, was the sitting JP until my family and I moved to Littlefield when I decided to buy KZZN,” said West. “At that point, I was so excited about owning my own radio station, and because of that, all the things I worked for where we used to live (Pecos) didn’t seem as important as moving to Littlefield and start a new chapter in our lives. Since moving here, West said he’s never regretted the move, because he’s enjoyed everything about Littlefield.
