Randy Christian has been a Lubbock resident since 1977.  In 1986, he opened Holland, Merriman, & Christian Advertising with two other partners.  Over the next 20 years, HM&C and later, Randy Christian and Partners, grew to be one of the largest and most respected agencies in the region, with more than 25 employees.  They represented many of Lubbock’s leading businesses, both large and small.

From 2008 to 2011, Randy was a freelance writer and marketing consultant.  Currently, he is Director of Marketing for the McGavock Auto Group. He has spent much of his time volunteering for causes he has a passion for, including the American Cancer Society, Jerry Gray Foundation, TeamLuke Foundation, Monterey Foundation and Colon Cancer Awareness .   As a 29-year colon cancer survivor, Randy has been a tireless advocate for families to have open and candid conversations regarding cancer because of its heritary nature.

With the upcoming opening on the City Council District 5, a friend asked Randy if he would consider running for City Council.  “It had never entered my mind,” Randy said.  But after many discussions with his wife, voters in the district, and with many business and civic leaders, Randy decided to ask the voters of District 5 to send him to City Hall. Let’s work together, please join me.
