Community leaders will host an event donned Reid, White and Blue: A Salute to Mayor Emeritus Tom Reid to benefit the arts in honor of the longest running Pearland Mayor, Tom Reid. After nearly four decades as an Elected Official in Pearland, Reid was sworn in as Mayor Emeritus in 2020 in the largest city of Brazoria County.
