Fort Worth District 5
Star-Telegram Posted Saturday, Jun. 01, 2013
Fort Worth’s City Council District 5 covers an expansive,complex and diverse area from the city’s southeast side to just shy of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. Its neighborhoods have competing interests and needs.
Incumbent City Councilman Frank Moss, 68, in two stints totaling 12 years on the council, has tried to address some of the area’s pressing problems, among them poor code enforcement, blighted communities and lagging residential and commercial development. He certainly has some accomplishments to his credit. But can another voice be a stronger advocate, a more unifying force and a leader to jump-start projects and initiatives that have languished for years? Challenger Gyna Bivens, 58, director of a nonprofit supported by some of the area’s largest corporations, is a longtime civic leader who has the dedication to community, vision, leadership ability,corporate connections and energy to improve some of the city’s most depressed areas. She can also add momentum to some of the development already underway in the district. Bivens led the field of three candidates in the May election, with 47 percent of the vote to Moss’ 44 percent.She is the change agent the district needs.The Star-Telegram Editorial Board recommends Gyna Bivens for Fort Worth City Council District 5.
