Task force named to advise City Council on redistricting

Posted Aug. 6, 2020

The City Council on Tuesday appointed an 11-member Redistricting Task Force to advise on redistricting criteria and procedures.

In 2016, Fort Worth voters approved an amendment to the City Charter to increase the number of City Councilmembers from nine to 11 following the completion of the 2020 Census. The Task Force on Race and Culture in December 2018 recommended the goal of ensuring that the City Council reflects the diverse communities that it represents.

Task force members:
Place 1: Lorraine Miller, chair.
Place 2: Salvador Espino.
Place 3: Graham Norris.
Place 4: Craig Allen.
Place 5: Bert Williams.
Place 6: Linda Kennedy.
Place 7: Tony DeVito.
Place 8: Tracy Scott.
Place 9: Kent Bradshaw.
Place 10: Bill Schur.
Place 11: Teresa Ayala.

Here is the timeline for the task force:
By Dec. 8, 2020. Present an interim report on its findings to the City Council.
January 2021. Multiple public hearings will be scheduled, either physically or virtually, at locations throughout the city to solicit community feedback on redistricting criteria and procedures.
March 2, 2021. The Redistricting Task Force makes its final recommendations to the City Council.

Task force meetings will be open to the public.
