Mayor

The incumbent Betsy Price defeated Deborah Peoples and James McBride to win his fifth term as mayor of Fort Worth.

In a city that has no time limits, Price is now the longest running mayor in the history of Fort Worth.

"Our priorities will remain the same with which we have been successful," said Price. "We are working on education, transport, infrastructure and job creation, recruiting jobs for this city".

People said he knew he could never match Price's war and that he had to depend on people to spread his message.

He said he was proud of his campaign.

"We were able to keep the message," said Popoli. "Fort Worth has problems, it's a problem with the tax base, it's a problem with transport, it's a problem with transparency."
