State . Rep. Pearson was born in 1959 and has spent his entire life living and working in the Slidell and Pearl River areas. He married Nancy Guillot more than 25 years ago.

After working in the financial services sector, Mr. Pearson opened his own company, based in Slidell. Wealth Management Group, Inc. was started in 2002 by Mr. Pearson, who holds licenses and certifications to serve as a broker and financial adviser. In 2007, he was appointed by Slidell City Court Judge Jim Lamz to a four-year term on the Board of the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center. He is the 2008 Chairman of the Slidell Heritage Festival, a role he also held in 2007.

Mr. Pearson entered the race for Representative from District 76 in August 2007, and won a spot in the runoff election in the Oct. 20, 2007 Primary. He prevailed in the Nov. 17 runoff, having earned the support of the third- and fourth-place finishers in the primary, Parish President Kevin Davis, and numerous other local leaders.
