Commissioner Pierson is a long time resident of the Spokane area, becoming a resident of the Spokane Valley and what would become Spokane County Water District #3 in 1983. Frank graduated from Lewis and Clark High School and completed a degree in business marketing from Eastern Washington University. Commissioner Pierson spent the early years of his career with the Boy Scouts of America working with the high school age group in Everett WA and Honolulu HI. Family proved the motivation to return home to Spokane where he joined a construction firm. His career development led to entrepreneurial challenges where he started and ran several businesses in the Spokane Valley before recently retiring
When Frank first came to the district in 1989 his goals were the same as they are now; to provide a safe source of water, to maintain and improve an aging infrastructure and to keep price increases minimal for the people of the district.
