Candidates for about 15 legislative spots in the greater Fort Worth area will field questions about how to pay for highways, rail and other transportation improvements Thursday evening in downtown Fort Worth.
The Tarrant Regional Transportation Coalition, a group of local officials from throughout the western side of North Texas, is hosting the forum 7-9 p.m. Thursday at Tarrant County College, Trinity River East Campus., 245 E. Belknap St.
The TRTC Candidates Forum will be in the TRHA Building, Room 1050 (auditorium).
“We need to understand what candidates know and think about transportation and they need to know that we care about sustaining mobility and see transportation as a priority issue,” coalition executive director Vic Suhm said in an email.
Moderator will be Ben Loughry, Fort Worth Real Estate Council chairman. Candidates will be allowed to make a brief statement and then will take questions from attendees.
May 29 is now believed to be the most likely date for the Texas primary. The date has been a moving target in the federal court dispute over redistricting.
