December 12, 2011

Texas State Senator Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, this weekend served as Grand Marshall of the Flower Mound Christmas Parade.

Along with her husband, Mike Nelson, and two of her grandsons, Andrew Nelson and Brendan Keller, Senator Nelson greeted her home community from a Christmas red convertible on loan from Grapevine Ford-Lincoln. "It is a tremendous honor to celebrate Christmas with my home community this way," said Senator Nelson.  "I want to wish everyone in Senate District 12 a very Merry Christmas!"

Senator Nelson and Mr. Nelson raised their five children in Flower Mound and are now the proud grandparents of four children.  A former teacher and lifetime PTA member, Senator Nelson served on the State Board of Education before being elected to the Texas Senate, where she chairs the Health and Human Services Committee.
