Joanna Morgan, Mayor
Term Expires May 2022
I grew up in Nederland, Texas, and attended the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with a BA in Economics. At Texas A&M, I did graduate work in Computer Science. Mike and I married in graduate school and moved to Houston, both pursuing careers in Information Technology. I retired from Cooper Industries, as Director of Corporate Information Systems at their corporate headquarters.
We bought property outside Smithville in 1989, and moved here full-time in 1999. In 2011, we moved into town. My first term on the City Council was in 2012. We have a son, daughter-in-law and grandson in Austin.
