WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady is excited to welcome lifetime resident of Montgomery County and proud Texas A&M Aggie, Heather Washburn, as his new District Director.

Heather brings a wealth of political knowledge and over a decade of teaching experience to Team Brady. She comes from Knox Jr. High where she taught science and served as head coach for a variety of sports teams. In her early career, Heather served as Senator Todd Staples’ District Coordinator and spent time managing campaigns for community leaders at both a local and state level. Her established involvement in the community and strong public service background make her a great fit for the Eighth Congressional District.

Heather’s predecessor, Todd Stephens, who was a member of Congressman Kevin Brady’s staff for thirteen years, has accepted a position at The Woodlands Township as Manager of Internal Governmental Relations. Transitioning into his role, Todd gave a fond farewell:

“As Congressman Brady has always said, ‘he went to Washington to tackle the big issues’ and I have enjoyed working alongside him on issues important to helping Texas families from pension reform to hurricane recovery following Rita, Ike and now Harvey to once-in-a-generation tax reform. I love this community and the people who call it home, and it has been an honor serving them and Mr. Brady.”

Statement from Congressman Brady:

“District Eight is lucky to have community leaders like Todd Stephens. I am grateful for for his unwavering dedication and years of public service to our community. Heather has large shoes to fill, but with her knowledge and experience, I am confident that she has what it takes to be a fantastic District Director."
