Zim out, Byrd in
Updated On: Jul 13, 2017

     With a little help from the PAC board and the generous support of our PAC members, Dr. Brian Byrd defeated incumbent Zim Zimmerman in Fort Worth City Council District 3.  A significant portion of his 686 vote victory was due directly to the votes that our membership put into the ballot box.

     Brian grew up in Weatherford and Fort Worth and graduated from Arlington Heights in 1988.  After finishing his undergrad at University of Texas Austin and medical school at UT Health Science Center San Antonio, Brian and his wife moved back to Fort Worth to start a medical practice and raise a family.  In 2008 he created Texas Hospice, which he then sold to Encompass Home Health in 2013.  Brian spends much of his time doing missionary work and serving on the boards of local charities.

     Helping Dr. Byrd defeat an unfriendly incumbent gives our membership one more ally on the City Council that will allow the Executive Board to negotiate a contract that is fair to us and the city.  Dr. Byrd's vast experience in the medical field should also assist with developing a firefighter friendly health insurance plan for our families and us.  

     The PAC board would like to give special thanks and shout out to all of our PAC members who worked on his campaign and every individual who got friends and neighbors to the ballot box in District 3!
