Dear Fort Worth Report friend,
In your Thursday Report, our lede focuses on how the pandemic has challenged the traditional approach of candidates shaking hands and kissing babies. Reporter Jessica Priest illustrates how candidates in the May 1 election are handling the task of campaigning during the pandemic.
Here are a couple of key stories from our recent coverage you might have missed:
- City charts next decade with upcoming election
- After more than a decade, Panther Island remains at center of Fort Worth Politics
You can find all of our relevant local election coverage on our special page, Building our Net Worth.
