After a recent increase in pitbull attacks, the dangerous dog issue is becoming a political platform in Lubbock County. Mayor Miller has held several press conferences over the last week. He's made it clear that he'll work with state lawmakers to change legislation and make the penalties higher for dangerous dog owners. Current County Commissioner Bill McKay--and John Miller, the man running for his seat--both say it's an issue that can't be ignored in this election year. Says McKay, "That's why we're here, for safety and security of the citizens, so we're working with the Sheriff's Dept., and with the legislature, trying to hone and fine tune some of the laws." Miller sexplains, "We just can't afford one more child to get attacked, we just can't, and the laws are on the books."
