The Honorable Chellie Stewart

Mayor, City of Sunrise Beach Village



Hello! My name is Chellie Stewart and I am the proud Mayor of the City of Sunrise Beach Village in Texas. I consider Sunrise Beach to be the best city, on the best lake, in the best county in the best state – so it is an absolute honor to serve.

My goals during this time in office are to promote forward-looking citywide initiatives with an emphasis on the water department, leverage cross-organizational engagement to promote community programs, and initiate proactive, two-way, city-to-citizen communication forums.

Since arriving in SBV, I have been an active volunteer in the community. I began as a member with both the Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) Auxiliary as well as a State of Texas, and nationally certified, first responder for our city’s Emergency Medical Services with the Sunrise Beach VFD. With the Auxiliary, I was a founding member of the Sip & Stroll, in addition to also volunteering for every fundraising event hosted by the VFD. I am an active CCAA member and former member of the Board of Adjustments.

Prior to moving to Sunrise Beach, I worked for a couple of Fortune 50 Companies before forming a partnership and buying nationally-branded restaurants. Most recently, I was CEO/Franchisee with KFC, running 125 restaurants in 7 states, employing over 4,000 people, handling 12 million customers each year, and managing a $120 million annual budget.

I have been a Sunrise Beach homeowner since 2017. I am a mom of two adult daughters, and we have lived in Texas for over 21 years.

Please reach out anytime with questions or concerns. You contact me via email at mayor@sunrisebeachtx.gov or call (325) 388-6438. And don’t forget to follow my Facebook for city updates and announcements!

Dan Gower

Mayor Pro Tem



Hello, my name is Dan Gower and I currently serve as Mayor Pro Tem on the city council. After serving 39 years with the U.S. Army, my primary expertise lies in critical thinking and planning. My goal in life is to have a servant’s heart.

That goal has found “feet” in my church where I serve as Finance Chairman and Sunday School leader.
Further, as a medical first responder and Fire Chief with the Sunrise Beach Volunteer Fire Department, I am at the forefront of emergency services and hazard mitigation planning for our city and the county of Llano. Sunrise Beach has been “Fort Final” for us since 2002.

I have been married to Susan Rock Gower for 53 years. We have twin sons who blessed us with 15 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.

Reach out to me via email at dan.gower@sunrisebeachtx.gov or chief@sunrisebeachvfd.org.
