Now serving his seventh term in Congress, Kevin Brady’s strong belief in free enterprise and free trade guides him in his leadership roles as the ranking member of the House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Trade and as the Senior House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee.
In Congress, Kevin Brady has been named “Hero of the Taxpayers,” “Small Business Champion” and “Super Friend of the Seniors.” He has received the Golden Bulldog Award by Watchdogs of the Treasury, special recognition by Citizens Against Government Waste, and is a perennial winner of the “Guardian of Small Business” and “Spirit of Enterprise” awards and recently was named “Deep East Texas Legislator of the Year” and “Outstanding Texas Political Leader of the Year.”
Prior to his election to Congress, Kevin Brady was 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 order to stay close to the people he represents, Kevin Brady chooses to commute to work in Washington each week so he, and his wife, Cathy, can raise their two sons, Will, 10, and Sean, 7, in Texas.
