Mary Moore, Mayor



On May 9, 2015, Moore became the first African American woman to be elected Mayor of Pearsall, with 66% of the city’s voters behind her and won re-election in 2017.

She is a physician assistant (PA), a mother of two, a grandmother of two, an author, and a self-inspired Christian music recording artist. Moore is well known in her community as the “Singing PA” and is the proud author of a soon-to-be published autobiography entitled Still Standing.

Since being in office, Mayor Moore has been on the forefront of building trust in city government through complete transparency and an open-door policy. Mayor Moore’s personal motto is, “If I have not made a difference. I have not done my job!”
