My priorities as mayor, and as a citizen who loves this community, are protecting our beautiful natural environment and the uniqueness and character of the Wimberley Valley. By building consensus and working to strengthen community ties, we preserve the qualities that make this picturesque place a true hometown.
Gina Fulkerson has served as mayor of Wimberley since May 2020. Previously, Gina served as a trustee of the Wimberley ISD board for 12 years, serving as vice president and then president for two of those 12 years. Community service has been a priority for Gina for more than 30 years. She served for 10 years as a director of the Wimberley Education Foundation, and also served on the Good Sam Wimberley advisory board and the Wimberley High School Academic Booster Club, serving as the latter’s president for five years. Presently, she serves on the board of Amigos de Jesus and along with her husband, serves as chancellor at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.
Gina attended Baylor University and graduated from Baylor Law School in 1983. She attained and maintained an AV rating – the highest rating for skill and integrity offered by the Martindale-Hubbell rating system. She defended schools, businesses, professionals and families throughout her career in litigation. She volunteered on the State Bar Child Abuse and Adoption Committee, providing free legal services to adoptive parents.
Gina and Tom Fulkerson married their first year in law school and just celebrated their 41st anniversary. They have three children, Kelly, Kate and Pierce, and a son-in-law, Jake, all graduates of Wimberley High School. Most recently they were thrilled to become grandparents to their first grandchild, Thomas, and are excited that he, Kate and Jake will be moving back to Wimberley in 2022.
Gina enjoys time with family, anything Italian and lots of time outside, preferably in or near the river.
