Jason Ward was elected mayor in November, 2021, and is serving his first term as mayor. Prior to his election as mayor, he served on Place 7 of the Benbrook City Council.
He was born in Dallas, raised in Llano, Texas and is a graduate from Texas State University – San Marcos where he met his wife, Robin, in 1994.  They have lived in Benbrook with their son, Elijah, since 2008.
