Incumbent Elizabeth Beck filed to run again in District 9 on Fort Worth’s City Council. There are two candidates officially running for the seat to date — Beck and Jason Peña

Beck, an attorney, was first elected in 2021. During her tenure on council, she has made finding solutions to homelessness in the city a top priority, and encouraged development in District 9. 

She has been actively campaigning ahead of the filing deadline, including a campaign fundraiser to “ keep a fighter for our neighborhoods at City Hall,” according to a post on Beck’s Facebook page.

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

Candidates across all 11 districts will vie for a seat on the council May 6. Of the nine incumbents, eight 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.
