The Fort Worth City Council consists of nine members: the mayor and 8 city council representatives. The current city council comprises of the following individuals:
- Mayor: Betsy Price
- District 2: Sap Espino
- District 3: Zim Zimmerman
- District 4: Danny Scarth
- District 5: Frank Moss
- District 6: Jungus Jordan
- District 7: Dennis Shingleton
- District 8: Kathleen Hicks – on Twitter
- District 9: Joel Burns – on Twitter
Below are two maps. Using the Fort Worth GIS city council overlays, I used Photoshop to layer the districts over a Google Maps still. Due to the shape of the districts and lacking quality from the GIS, the overlay below is approximate. Districts containing the Twitter bird represent those districts with a city council representative that has a Twitter account. The second, shows, for comparison, districts with a rep on Twitter versus the remainder of the city. Click the images to make larger.
More analysis tomorrow.
