From Wikipedia

Frances K Prince was the first woman mayor of Thousand Oaks, California and played a pivotal role in the city's development for three decades. Initially entering politics as a result of a dispute with a developer over her residential neighborhood, Prince returned to school and earned a law degree. She was concerned about over-development, conservation, and city planning, and formally entered politics in 1972, moving from the planning commission to the city council and finally mayor. She also served on state agencies, chairing the regional commission of the state parks authority. Upon leaving office, she worked at a large law firm which focused in the area of civil defense before scaling back her career to work as a director of a senior citizens' facility.
