Get out to vote May 7

Posted April 28, 2016

Get out and vote on May 7.

It’s that simple.

We need to hear from you. The special election on May 7 asks voters to consider 11 amendments to the city charter, which essentially serves as the rule book for how the City of Fort Worth functions.

Maybe you’re a native from Fort Worth; maybe you’re not. At the end of the day, the daily operations of the city will affect you in some form or fashion.

The city handles some of the most complex and yet mundane, and critically essential roles in your daily life. The city delivers water to your house, picks up your trash and provides first responders to protect the wellbeing of its citizens.

Everything our city does must be based on serving the needs and dreams of our citizens, students, our business owners, families and our workforce.

But we can’t do that, or respect what you want without you telling us what it is that matters to you.

“It’s Your Fort Worth.” This is your city. But, we need your input.

Please get out and vote on May 7.

Visit the charter election web page to learn more about the propositions on the ballot.

If you’d like to explore more ways to get involved in the community, check out out this past Mayor’s Message or consider participating in upcoming town halls.
