Beverly Gaines has served the City of Webster since 1999 when she became a resident. Gaines and Ron, her husband of 50 years, moved to Webster from Sealy where she had been very active in local government as an election clerk and judge.

Gaines served on city council from 2006 to 2012, then from 2015 to the present. She presides as mayor pro tem, just as she did in 2015. 

Of great importance, Gaines is very active in the Texas Municipal League (TML) and Texas Association of Mayors, Council Members and Commissioners (TAMCC), a TML affiliate organization. Gaines serves as president of TML Region 14 and presides as vice president of TAMCC. 

During Gaines’ tenure on city council, she earned the prestigious Certified Municipal Official designation that connotes dedication to her office and city. Just as society and its challenges and opportunities evolve, so, too, do regulations, laws, and best practices for city officials. Continuing education prepares Gaines to serve her constituents, fellow council members, and staff in the best possible manner. 

Gaines fuses her vocation as life and health insurance agent with public service. She serves on a number of boards and civic organizations, including the Webster Economic Development Corporation and the Webster Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association. Her service illuminates a wide range of interests, like the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone, Zoning Board of Adjustments, Celebration Committee, Harris County Mayor and Council Association, Houston-Galveston Area Council, and ERCOT.

Gaines is dedicated to serving Webster with her commitment to maintain a high level of safety, City services, fiscal responsibility, and quality of life, together with a low property tax rate and pro-business mentality.
