Leonard Firestone has defeated Zeb Pent in the runoff election for Fort Worth City Council District 7, 55.20% to 44.80%. All precincts have reported.

Firestone and Pent were vying to replace Dennis Shingleton, who announced earlier this year that he would retire after a decade on the council.

Firestone could not immediately be reached for comment.

In the original election on May 1, no candidate received 50% of the vote in a crowded field. Firestone and Pent finished as the top vote-getters, advancing to the runoff.

Firestone is an entrepreneur who says his top three priorities are lowering property taxes; improving traffic flow; and ensuring quick police, fire and EMS response times in the district’s neighborhoods.

Pent is a self-employed business consultant and says his top three priorities are roads, citing the commute times many of the residents in the district have; rooftops, citing reducing property taxes and keeping the city’s police and fire departments well-funded; and responsibility, specifically citing fiscal responsibility.
