Michael Crain, a real estate broker and incumbent council member, filed to run again in District 3 on Fort Worth City Council. 

He is the lone candidate to date officially running for the seat. 

“I officially filed for re-election for the District 3 City Council seat,” Crain announced on Facebook. “The job I set out to do with your support in 2021 is not yet done. There is more work to do to continue to ensure our city is still the greatest city to live, work, play and, yes, raise a family.”

Crain received a law degree from Texas A&M University School of Law and a business degree from the State University of New Jersey’s Rutgers Business School. He has previously worked for several Fort Worth politicians, including U.S. Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth. 

District 3 includes most of southwest Fort Worth. 

Municipal elections are coming up. Here are some key dates:

Jan. 18: Candidates began filing
Feb. 17: Last day for candidates to file
April 6: Last day to register to vote
April 24: Early voting begins

Candidates across all 11 districts will vie for a seat at the dias May 6. Of the nine incumbents, five have filed for reelection so far. 

Two districts — 10 and 11 — will be filled for the first time, after the City Council passed a redistricting map to establish them.
