New Tarrant County Democratic Party chairman Steve Maxwell said he does not completely share the opposition of his predecessor, Art Brender, to the Trinity River Vision urban waterfront project.
"I think that any project that benefits the city of Fort Worth is a great project unless it benefits only a few people, which appears to be the case here,” said Maxwell. “I am negative on this but my mind can be changed if it can be demonstrated that the project benefits more people.”
"I'm willing to have my mind changed."
Maxwell, who's only been chair since May, may find a welcome from Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth, who's trying to secure Democratic suppport in Congress to get the project authorized for the latest projected $576 million cost, up from the previously authorized $220 million.
