Pursuant to the terms of Texas Local Government Code Section 143.006(b), the Civil Service Commission (Commission) consists of three members appointed by the City Manager and confirmed by the City Council.  The Commissioners serve staggered three-year terms, so that one position expires each year.  On January 14, 2018, Civil Service Commission member David Avila submitted his Civil Service Commission resignation due to a job out of the country.  His current term expires on October 1, 2020.  The City Manager is requesting confirmation of the appointment of Jason Baldwin to replace David Avila as a member of the Commission.  If confirmed, Jason Baldwin will serve for the remainder of the term of the position held by David Avila until October 1, 2020.

Jason Baldwin is a native to the State of Texas. He was born and raised in Houston, Texas, but has been a resident of Fort Worth for four and a half years. He currently works at Wells Fargo in the Auto Division. He is also currently a student a Tarrant County Community College and hopes to finish his business degree at Tarleton State University in the next couple of years. Apart from his work and school, Jason has been on the recommendation committee of the Crime Control & Prevention District. He will resign from that committee if confirmed for the Civil Service Commission.  Jason has remained involved in a number of different community events to help local non-profits. Most proudly, he was one of the organizers for Main Street Backs the Blue in Fort Worth that had over 1,200 citizens come out and show their support for our first responders.
