Councilwoman Pearce was elected in 2016 to represent the second council district on the Long Beach City Council. As a child she grew up in Pasadena, Texas, a suburb of Houston and moved to Long Beach as a student to attend California State University at Long Beach (CSULB). As the first in her family to attend college, she graduated in 2009 at the top of her class with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Sociology.
The Second Council District. The Second Council District of Long Beach houses many historic districts, part of Downtown Long Beach, and most of the Port of Long Beach. We are one of the most diverse districts in Long Beach and are better off for it. Whether you’re shopping on Retro Row, dining on Broadway or in the East Village, or going out in our beautiful downtown, Long Beach’s Second District has it all!
