Betsy Price - Mayor, City of Fort Worth

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price highlighted the many factors that are bringing Fort Worth to the forefront of corporate relocation. “Fort Worth is currently the 15th largest city in the nation. By the 2020 census it is likely that Fort Worth may rank as high as 12 or 13.” Mayor Price goes on to say, “Fort Worth has 70,000 undeveloped acres of land – more than Plano, Frisco, McKinney and Allen combined. This represents opportunity for economic development.”

Robert Sturns, Economic Development Director, City of Fort Worth
