ECTOR COUNTY -- The citizens of Ector County have spoken and they selected Debi Hays as the next Ector County Judge.
"I am proud to be here today knowing that they have trusted me to look after their budget, their infrastructure, the new growth of Ector County -- and I'm just humbled and honored that I was chosen to do that," Hays said.
Hays says she's ready to hit the ground running. Once in office, she already has a list of important issues she plans to tackle. Some of those include, the budget, the aging courthouse and the tax issue.
Hays does not have a set date of when she will take office, as speculation that current Ector County Judge Ron Eckert could step down sooner than planned.
Chris Fostel, Hays opponent, said he still wants to take care of the citizens of Ector County
