Identical twins Audrey and Chloe are studying at the University of Texas at Austin and Rice University. Argyle ISD has enriched the life of their family, through involvement in band (Bryan is a veteran of the prop crew and Barb was an active band booster), theater, UIL academics and Argyle Tennis. The Livingston family is grateful for the small-town environment and the culture of achievement in sports, academics and the arts that Argyle ISD and the Town of Argyle provided.

Bryan has been a dedicated community leader in North Texas for almost two decades. In 2002, he became President of the University Place Neighborhood Association in Fort Worth, a voluntary civic association that waged a multi-year effort to preserve a single-family bungalow neighborhood near the TCU campus targeted by real estate investors and the university. Under Bryan’s leadership, UPNA was ultimately successful, and their effort became a model for the preservation of established neighborhoods in Fort Worth. 

Bryan was also a key citizen negotiator on the team that created landmark natural gas lease agreements put in place for Barnett Shale urban drilling in Fort Worth. His strong leadership of UPNA led to his recognition by Historic Fort Worth in 2006 for his dedication to the preservation of the quality of life for citizens living in the city’s urban neighborhoods.  

Bryan’s community involvement also includes serving as the president of a private school board and in church council leadership positions. 

When Bryan, his wife Barbara, and their three daughters moved to Argyle in 2012, he became an active volunteer-leader in the town, taking a specific interest in the zoning and development issues that impact public safety and the quality of life of Argyle citizens. Bryan’s involvement as a citizen of Argyle and his leadership experience led to an appointment to the Town Council in October 2019, his election to Town Council Place 1 in November of 2020 and his election to Mayor of Argyle in May of 2021.
