Mayor Mary Dennis
Prior to Mayor Dennis’ election as the first African-American Mayor in Live Oak, she served on the Planning and Zoning Commission for several years and pursued two bids for a council seat. Ms. Dennis has served as Mayor for the City of Live Oak since 2010 and was re-elected as Mayor during the 2020 General Election. As Mayor, she desires to bring the city closer together across varied backgrounds and much of her time is participating in activities throughout the City and the Region. Mary believes government is about serving people by making City government more efficient and accessible. Mary’s civic activities are many from the city’s Economic Development Corporation President, as the 2021 Board of Director with the National League of Cities and 2020 Federal & State Government Advocacy Working Group (COVID-19) for Bexar County communities. She is looking forward to continuing to serve TML, all Regions and Live Oak community.
