Becky Mansfield Pierce was appointed to the Planning and Zoning Committee at the city council meeting Monday.

Pierce has been a citizen of Glen Rose since 1983. She was a traveling nurse, but when it came time to retire she wanted to return to her roots.

“I enjoy the small town friendliness and where you have a village to watch over your children,” Pierce said.

Pierce is married and has four children and three grandsons.

“I look forward to my grandchildren visiting so I can show them where their parents grew up,” she said.

Pierce understands how important it is to bring new families and businesses to the area. 

“I believe in teamwork and open communication with other committees, council members and office officials. Transparency is the key as Glen Rose moves into the next decade,” said Pierce.
