OPEN LETTER: Meet Amy Peck a candidate for Houston City Council for District A in the 2013 Mayoral Election

Amy Peck a 2013 Candidate for Houston City Council for District A has more than a decade of government experience.

Meet Amy Peck a candidate for Houston City Council for District A in the 2013 Mayoral Election 

Dear Houstonians,

Thank you for taking the time to read about the campaign. My name is Amy Peck, and I’m running for Houston City Council District A. I would be honored to represent you, share my platform, and tell you a little bit more about myself.

With nearly a decade of government experience, I know what it takes to find solutions, navigate the complicated governmental agencies, and get things done. As the District Director for Senator Dan Patrick for the past six years, I have assisted thousands of Houstonians. I have been working with Senator Dan Patrick since the day he took office, so I know what it means to see a job through. This has been wonderfully rewarding work, and I look forward to taking this experience to the city level.

Before my time in Senator Dan Patrick’s office, I worked for Senator Jon Lindsay in both his Austin and Houston offices. I have volunteered my time for the Harris County Republican Party and the county precinct chairs as well as many republican groups. I have also dedicated myself to working on the campaign of numerous elected officials, as well as with Texas Children’s Hospital as an activity room volunteer. I also counseled at the VA Hospital in Houston where I assisted returning veterans who suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, helping them receive the resources, benefits, and psychological support they so badly needed.

I hold Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Psychology and Government from the University of Texas-Austin, and I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston. As a life-long Houstonian dedicated to serving those around me, I have the educational background and hands-on experience to help our community.

I live in Spring Branch with my husband, Jayson, and our two dogs, Charlie and Lucy.

Thank you for this opportunity,

Amy Peck
Candidate for Houston City Council for District A
