New County Attorney appointed by Ector County, Texas commissioners

The Ector County, Texas Commissioners Court approved the resignation of Current County Attorney Gregory Barber and then voted to replace him with new attorney Lee McClendon, who has worked in the county’s legal department for nearly two decades. Barber, who was elected to the four-year County Attorney position in November, is stepping down after less than one year to assume a new role as Assistant District attorney for the county. McClendon will have to run for the County Attorney position next year if he wishes to retain the job. A 1981 Permian High School graduate, McClendon earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence from University of Texas of Austin in 1986.
