Shenandoah Honors Kevin Brady
Brady, a Republican, has spent 30 years in the public service of the Woodlands area, first in the Texas House of Representatives and finally as a 26-year member of the US House of Representatives.
A native of South Dakota, Brady was raised in a Democratic family.
He came to Texas in 1988 for a Chamber of Commerce position in Beaumont.
While working for the Chamber, he became a Republican because he felt the government put a burden on job creators. In 1990 he ran for the Texas House of Representatives representing the area of The Woodlands.
In 1996 as Clinton was reelected, he ran for the US House of Representatives seat of Jack Fields, who had announced his retirement, which also represented The Woodlands area.
Known by his colleagues as always willing to work with members on both sides of the aisle, Brady kept a low profile and his nose to the ground working for the good of his constituents.
He was assigned to the House Ways and Means Committee where he became the chair of one of the nation’s most important Congressional committees in 2015 and remained until committee chair limits forced him to “simply” become the most senior member of the committee.
