Betsy Price

Former Mayor

City of Fort Worth

Betsy Price, a Fort Worth native, was elected in 2011 as the 44th mayor of the City of  Fort Worth. In 2019, Price was re-elected to a historic 5th term and is on track to be the  longest serving Mayor of Fort Worth. As the 13th largest city in the U.S., Fort Worth  remains one of the fastest growing large cities in the country.

Price has been an active leader in the Fort Worth community for years, serving on  numerous boards, commissions, and professional associations. After running her own  successful title company, Price Cornelius Title, for 17 years, Price turned to public  service.

Elected in 2000 to serve as Tarrant County’s Tax Assessor, she transformed the  Assessor’s Office into one of the most efficient in the State of Texas, saving taxpayers  millions. Her roles as a businesswoman and community activist garnered her a  reputation for being an innovator with strong leadership in solving some of the most  pressing issues in one of Texas’ fastest-growing cities.

Since taking office, Price has initiated a broad agenda founded in the values of fiscal  responsibility, accessibility, transparency, and accountability. Price focuses her work on  the basics of any growing city to ensure sustainability for future generations. Along with  her emphasis on economic development, strengthening education, promoting public  safety, and improving mobility, Price has made significant strides along the path toward  her vision of a healthy, engaged and fiscally responsible city.

She has been married to Tom, an insurance agent, for more than 40 years and has  three children. Price is also a proud grandmother to her six grandchildren.
