City Manager
David Cooke


David Cooke became Fort Worth’s city manager June 30, 2014, following a national search. Cooke is responsible for implementing the Mayor and City Council’s policies and managing the $1.6 billion city government enterprise with approximately 6,600 employees.


While the City of Fort Worth’s population grows at approximately 20,000 new citizens per year, Cooke’s focus is on:


  •  Exceptional customer service
  •  Maintaining a long-term perspective
  •  Stressing partnerships to provide services and solve complex public policy problems
  • Planning and implementing the infrastructure needs of a growing city


His prior experience includes 13-1/2 years as County Manager and 4 years as Deputy County Manager, in Wake County, N.C.; and 12 years with the city of Charlotte, N.C.


Cooke has also worked with a full-service engineering and consulting firm, has taught economics at a community college, and was a presidential management intern with the Department of Defense.


Cooke received his undergraduate degree and master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We invite every business owner, professional person, firm, corporation or non-profit organization, to join us for our monthly meetings where you will meet other business owners, individuals and city officials that influence our lives.

Our meetings presentations cover events and politics affecting the business environment. We provide civic and community information, plans for development of new businesses, roads, trade areas, recreational areas and Educational projects of vital interest to East Fort Worth.

EFWBA advocates for the advancement, development, and improvement of the infra-structure of East Fort Worth (this includes street design, zoning, landscaping, and beautification projects), reviewing and critiqueing issues and projects of interest to business and community of East Fort Worth.

The mission is still the same today for this long-lived organization. It was founded in 1974 as a 501(c)4 so that it could be involved in non-partisan political issues. Working with the neighborhoods and Fort Worth City Government offices for the betterment of East Fort Worth sometimes leads to involvement in the political arena.
