Fort Worth’s political leadership is about to change for the first time in years.

City elections are coming up on May 1, and Betsy Price, Fort Worth’s longest-serving mayor, is not seeking reelection after a decade in office.

Two City Council members are running for Price’s job, and another is retiring, leaving another three seats open on a Council that has not changed since 2017.

Plus, the races are far more crowded than usual. Ten candidates are running for mayor alone. In a city known for its polite, nonconfrontational politics, a shakeup could be on its way.

Ahead of the election, KERA wants to hear from Fort Worth residents. What do you want to change in your community as a result of this election?
