Government Advocacy for Brenham & Washington County Businesses

The Washington County Chamber seeks to be the guardian of the local economy and the catalyst for change through the coordination of local leadership.  The Chamber coordinates interested parties in solving community challenges and initiates community action that will benefit the community and the members of the Chamber.

The Chamber exists to be the “voice of business” at the local, state and federal level, and encourages all members to stay active by taking advantage of opportunities to provide feedback and encourage each individual to exercise their right to vote in elections.



The Chamber's Government Affairs Committee asked these candidates to complete a questionnaire about their views and goals if elected. Click next to each candidate's name to view the information they personally submitted. (To be published on Monday, April 24, 2023) Responses not yet received will be added as they are submitted to the Chamber.
