A Conversation with Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker

Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker, one of America’s youngest mayors, has been on the job for less than a year. In that time she’s led the most politically conservative big city in Texas through a host of urban challenges, from unraveling public health to affordability to transportation. How would she say her first term is going?

Join The Texas Tribune for a live, in-person conversation between Tribune CEO Evan Smith and Parker at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom at Texas Christian University.
