​I am a Marine Corps Veteran. I am a father to 4 daughters. I have and always will be a huge part in my community trying to make it a better place for our kids, who are the future. I have been married for 12 years. I enjoy riding motorcycles and bicycles and spending time with family and friends. I currently work for Est Companies as a Service Technician, I attended UT Brownsville and have lived in Goliad for 6 years. I will gladly give the shirt off my back to help those in need.

Brenda Moses, Alderwoman

​ ​I have been a part of the City of Goliad since 2011. I worked for the City as the Utility Billing Clerk from 2011-2012 and then became the Finance Specialist from 2012-2014. I am employed with Margaret Fisseler, CPA. I became a Councilmember in May 2015. My husband Jason and I have six children ranging in age from 28-8. I am a member of the Goliad Rotary Club, have coached in Goliad Little League and participate with Ballet Folkorico de Goliad. I was born and raised in Pittsburg, Texas. Our family chose Goliad as our home when we moved South from Northeast Texas. We love the charm and the small town atmosphere of Goliad. My goal is that by using my experience as an employee of the City, knowing how the City works and runs financially and physically on a daily basis, that I can use that knowledge to help make the proper decisions for the Citizens of Goliad.

​ ​I am from Amarillo originally, but because of work (both my parent's and husband's) I have lived in Oklahoma, Kansas and back again to Texas. I also have had the opportunity to live in Argentina and Ecuador. I moved to Goliad in 2007 with my husband Ernest, after he decided to retire. I have been in Goliad longer than any place I had lived before. I consider Goliad home. I have 3 kids, all grown that live in Alice. I have 4 grandchildren. I graduated Montgomery County College in 1990 with an Associates Degree in Nursing. In nursing I have worked in hospitals, schools, research and home health. I currently work as a RN Consult for La Bahia Adult Daycare in Goliad.
