Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price officially announced her plans Wednesday to run for a third term as mayor.
Price said she decided to make her announcement at the Marine Park Pool because it was one of two pools she helped to be built while serving as mayor.
"Fort Worth is defined not only by our picturesque downtown skyline, but also by the honest, hardworking families who have built thriving neighborhoods in every sector of our city," she said. "It's vital that we continue to focus on improving these neighborhoods with the basic city services and amenities that improve our quality of life like roads, libraries, public safety, parks and pools."
The mayor said ever since she was first elected in 2011, she has promised to a be a mayor who does not sit behind a desk at city hall. She thinks she has proved to the community that she gets out and gets things done.
The latest news from around North Texas.
If re-elected for a third term, Price does have one goal she wants to accomplish.
"We want to engage our citizens," she said. "Big cities like Fort Worth people tend to be very happy, our citizen serve each other, but we need to hear from them. We can't govern in a vacuum. We want to get people out, get them moving to tell us about the city."
So far, Mayor Price is the only person to throw their hat into the mayor's race.
