Former Texas State Senator Florence Shapiro

Florence Shapiro
"Plano has been called the 'All America City,' one of the safest and most 'Kid-Friendly Cities' in the U.S., and 'The Hottest Place to Live in the Western United States.' Accolades like these speak volumes about our city. Businesses enjoy our pro-business environment in large part due to the fact that 93 percent of our workforce in Plano has more than 12 years of schooling; that's a post-secondary education for 93 percent of our citizens.

I feel so fortunate to have served as Mayor of Plano and to have represented the city in the Texas Senate. My husband and I, in 1971, chose Plano to raise our family because of the quality of life and the nationally acclaimed public school system. Today, we are just as proud to call Plano our home."
