Peter Svarzbein wins District 1

The votes have been tallied and West side residents will have a new elected leader representing them.

Peter Svarzbein won the District 1 runoff elections by 10%.

Out of 4,065 votes cast in the district Svarzbien won by 431 votes.

ABC-7 caught up with opponent Al Weisenberger after the results. He tells ABC-7 he hopes Svarzbein is ready for the seat.

“To be honest with you I hope he’s up to do the job. His experience is limited. He has very thin business experience and it’s going to be hard for him,” said Weisenberger.

Svarzbein, the a young entrepreneur, former small business owner and photography instructor at the Texas Tech College of Architecture was celebrating with his friends and constituents Saturday night.

Svarbein told ABC-7 this was months and months in the making and he was just feeling ecstatic that all the hard work him and his party put in-paid off.

ABC-7 did ask, with quality of life bonds being a hot topic at city council what would be his first steps in tackling those issues.

“First of all I need to get caught up with where council is right now with those bonds. What I’d like to do is think how these projects to get the biggest return in investment for our hard earned tax dollars and let’s think outside the box with partnerships and opportunities where we can partner up so we don’t have to inflict anymore burden on the taxpayers,” said Svarzbein.

Opponent Weisenberger said he will not be getting involved with politics again.
