DFWI & FWDNA to Host Candidate Forums
Join Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. and the Fort Worth Downtown Neighborhood Alliance in Burnett Park for two candidate forums ahead of the General Election for Fort Worth Mayor and City Council.
Mayoral Candidate Forum
District 9 Candidate Forum
The format will be the same for both forums. Each candidate will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and make a two-minute opening statement. Following this, a moderator will ask questions. Each candidate will have up to one minute to respond.
Attending citizens may submit questions before the beginning of the forum or send questions in advance to Beckyf@dfwi.org.
All Mayoral and Council candidates have been sent a DFWI Annual Report and a State of Downtown publication so that they are aware of the underlying dynamics of Downtown. While these are pre-COVID publications, they still illustrate the long term trajectory of Downtown and redevelopment efforts. Questions for the candidates will be focused on topics that directly affect Downtown.
