TREAD AND OUR WORK

The Texas Real Estate Advocacy & Defense Political Action Committee (TREADPAC) enables us to approach legislative matters of concern to landowners through a well-organized, well-informed unified front. Through TREADPAC, landowners, and others who are interested in protecting private property rights and the precious resources of Texas, are able to pool their resources and help elect candidates on a local, state and national level.

These funds can be used to increase your participation in grassroots activities which increases TREAD’s effectiveness and political strength.

TREADPAC supports candidates who are like-minded and will advocate for landowners and protect private property rights once elected to office. TREAD hosts town halls and has a candidate-screening process to insure we are investing in the right candidate.

TREADPAC is also your insurance policy to make sure that only sound policy passed and bad bills don’t go anywhere. Invest in TREADPAC today!

TREAD PAC BOARD

Kay Pence, BOARD CHAIR

COMFORT, KENDALL COUNTY

Kay Pence

My love for rural life began in my hometown of rural Pearland where my parents taught me the importance of being a good steward of the land. After graduating from Texas A&M, I began my 35-year career in banking, specifically Trusts and Investments. My passion for the land and the Hill Country started in 2008 when my daughter and I moved to a ranch in Bandera. In 2014, I retired and planted a 10-acre vineyard at our home in Fredericksburg. My husband and I now split our time between Fredericksburg and our ranch in Comfort, where we like to escape to enjoy the beauty of the Hill Country. I currently serve on the board of Peterson Hospital in Kerrville.

Growing up on a Texas ranch, I have always had an appreciation for both the joys and challenges of rural America. As the mayor of Kyle from 2010 – 2014, I helped navigate my hometown through a period of heavy growth and development as it shifted from a small farming and ranching community to a prosperous, energetic city within the greater Austin metropolitan area. In 2014, I spent two years as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Rural Outreach for the U.S. Department of Education, providing a voice for education stakeholders in rural communities and representing national education interests on the White House Rural Council. Now back in Central Texas, I look forward to donating my time to lifting up and celebrating the region’s diverse voices and heritage.

LANDOWNER CHAMPIONS

TREAD is grateful for landowner champions in the Texas legislature who support private property rights and advocate for landowners in their individual districts. Now more than ever, we need our voices to be heard. It is important to keep leaders who represent us well in office as it determines how we, as a coalition, will proceed in defending our rights as landowners.
