Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Wednesday Report, our lede takes a hard look at how social media can affect a campaign. Reporter Jessica Priest examines the Fort Worth City Council District 9 race where social media posts led to a candidate withdrawing from the race.

Here are a couple of key stories from our recent coverage you might have missed:

You can find all of our relevant local election coverage on our special page, Building our Net Worth. Do you have a Tarrant County event you want to promote? Take advantage of our calendar and list your event for free. Do you have news you want to send us? Go here to submit your press release.

Is vaccine hesitancy really a factor in Tarrant County? Reporter Jacob Sanchez has that story later this week, so make sure you’re coming back to see new stories every day.

As always, thanks for reading, and please let us know what you want in your Report.

Thomas Martinez,
Managing Editor
