Council Member Graham Pearson
Councilman PearsonPersonal Life
I was born and raised in the northeast of England, attending Nottingham University before immigrating to the USA in 1976. I became a U.S. citizen in 1984. and after working in West Virginia and Houston, my wife Renée and I moved to Fredericksburg in 1998.

Moving to Fredericksburg
Living in Fredericksburg is a heart warming experience. Everyone has been very welcoming and I am proud of our city’s rich cultural and historical heritage. Wanting to preserve this heritage and to be involved with the careful planning of its future, I decided to take an interest in local politics in 2004.

Serving on the Council
By 2009, I felt it was time to step up to the plate and serve on City Council, although it took another year for me to convince sufficient voters that I am worth the risk. I am now a very enthusiastic first time council member. I try to balance a rigorous scientific approach to business issues with a creative talent for problem solving. I am always willing to listen and I approach new issues with a lack of bias.

I am a member of the Fredericksburg Morning Rotary, the Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance, Gillespie County Republicans, and the Bethany Lutheran praise team. My spare time passion is music. I play in a local dance band and for the past eight years I’ve helped organize “The Beat Goes On”, an annual event featuring local musicians who give their time and talent in support of Relay for Life.
