Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings are at the midpoint of a weeklong economic development trip to the United Kingdom and Germany.
As the old saying goes, it’s tough work but somebody’s got to do it.
The two are leading a delegation from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport that’s focused on developing business relationships and travel connections through DFW.
Some people always criticize the mayors for such cushy assignments. But never underestimate the value of Texas hospitality and friendliness.
More than 140 companies from the United Kingdom and Germany have operations in North Texas, the airport says. Having the top local officials there to shake some hands and say some positive things could mean more business.
