Kevin Brady considers it an honor to be representing the 8th District of Texas in the U.S House of Representatives.
A pro-family, pro-small business conservative, Kevin’s strong belief in free enterprise guides him as the Vice Chairman and top Republican on the Joint Economic Committee.
A Deputy Whip for the GOP Leadership team, Kevin is a senior member of the House Ways & Means Committee, considered by many to be the most powerful committee in Congress, with jurisdiction over 2/3 of the federal budget including taxes, Social Security, Medicare, international trade and welfare. As the Chairman on the Subcommittee on Trade and a senior member of the Social Security Subcommittee, Kevin fights for free market solutions to our country’s economic challenges and preservation of the programs that help our seniors.
As the White House's point man in the successful passage of the Central American Free Trade Agreement, Kevin is excited about the thousands of new jobs that free trade has created here in Texas.
Prior to his election in Congress, Kevin worked as a chamber of commerce executive for 18 years and served six years in the Texas House of Representatives where he was a leader on victims’ rights issues and named one of the Ten Best Legislators for Families & Children. In 1994 he was named one of Five Outstanding Young Texans.
In order to stay close to the people he represents, Kevin, an original Hometown Hero of The Woodlands is a million mile flyer with Continental Airlines. He chooses to commute to work in Washington each week so he, and his wife, Cathy Patronella Brady, can raise their two sons, Will (13) and Sean (10) in The Woodlands where they attend Saints Simons and Jude Catholic Church. A Paul Harris Fellow in Rotary, Kevin is also a Distinguished Alumni of the University of South Dakota.
