(AP) — A runoff will decide Fort Worth’s first new mayor in a decade. Deborah Peoples and Mattie Parker were the top vote-getters Saturday night in the race to succeed outgoing Mayor Betsy Price, the only Republican mayor of Texas’ big cities.
Peoples is the county chairwoman of the Democratic Party and would be Fort Worth’s first Black mayor if elected. Parker is a former aide to Price and carried the endorsement of business leaders in the city. The runoff is June 5.
