AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement celebrating Democrats’ success in flipping the Fort Worth City Council:
“I’m excited to congratulate Fort Worth residents on electing Democrats to five out of nine city council seats. With their new Democratic majority, these local leaders will be important champions for communities across Fort Worth. I look forward to seeing the progress they’ll create on behalf of Texas’ fifth largest city, and I thank everyone who worked hard to make this victory possible.
“By turning their city council blue, Fort Worth residents have shown what we already know to be true: a Democratic groundswell is rising up all around Texas. Our communities are demanding change and ready to take back our state. Texas Democrats will keep organizing, keep building power, and keep fighting for important wins like this one in the push to build a better Texas for all of us.”
