Three out of four Fort Worth City Council incumbents are keeping their jobs. Another is in a runoff. So the council’s direction is unlikely to change.

Will voters want you back if you quit during your term in office?  Will they think you’re ineffective if don’t vote on big issues because of a family conflict? Those are two of the biggest questions in the Fort Worth District 8 council race between incumbent Kelly Allen Gray and the council member she replaced, Kathleen Hicks. 

District 8 Incumbent Council Member Kelly Allen Gray joined the Fort Worth City Council in July 2012 after winning a special election to complete the unexpired term of Kathleen Hicks. Hicks left the council after seven years to run in the 33rd District Congressional race.  Hicks is now trying to regain her council seat.
