Texas Legislative Conference names Congressman Kevin Brady “Texan of the Year”

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The Texas Legislative Conference has selected a U.S Congressman as “Texan of the Year”.

The statewide policy and business forum has chosen Republican U.S Representative Kevin Brady for it’s annual honor.

According to a press release from the nonpartisan organization, Brady is being recognized for his efforts as a national economic leader.

The Congressman, who represents Texas’ 8th Congressional District near Houston, is currently serving his 13th term and is the third Texan to chair the House Ways and Means Committee.

“As a former chamber executive and distinguished member of the United States House of
Representatives, Congressman Brady is extraordinarily deserving of this honor,” said
Conference Chair Patrick Rose of Corridor Title. “Texas benefits from a history of Ways &
Means Committee stewardship, and a 55-year legacy of leadership on the committee that
started with former President George H.W. Bush and continued with Bill Archer and now
Kevin Brady. We very much look forward to bestowing this distinguished honor on such a
deserving recipient.”

Brady will be honored March 24 at the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center.

He released the following statement:

“Thank you so much for this honor, it really is remarkable,” said Brady. “This legislative
conference is iconic in Texas. It’s where people who want to find solutions come together and
have for more than half a century. For our state especially, the Texas Legislative Conference
plays a huge role, which is another reason I’m honored to be Texan of the Year for 2022.”
