Brianna Chacón, Honorable Mayor
Email Brianna Chacón
Mayor Brianna Chacon was originally from Garland, Texas, but found her way here 16 years ago and has been in love with the city since. She and her husband Nick raise their 5 children here, ages 19, 15, 14, 4, and 2! Mayor Brianna Chacon prides herself in being a Mayor who truly gets in the trenches and serves alongside her citizens and is always looking for ways to promote and encourage community events and involvement. She is a servant by nature, whether she is serving her City and the residents, serving at her church, or serving food to the hungry in Princeton. One of Mayor Chacon's dreams has always been to help serve the less fortunate and hungry and this December she started People Feeding Princeton where every first and third Saturday of the month she helps distribute food to Princeton and surrounding cities. Outside of serving her city and church, she is also an accomplished Real Estate Agent for Simply Texas Real Estate which gives her extreme knowledge of the current market that she can bring to Princeton as it continues to grow! Her expertise helps usher in the strategic growth necessary to continue to make Princeton a phenomenal city.
More than anything, Mayor Chacon wants the residents of Princeton to know that she operates with transparency, integrity, authenticity, and passion. She's also always up for a good cup of coffee if you ever need to chat!
