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