Representative Ed Thompson serves the 29th District in the Texas House of Representatives representing Pearland, Manvel, Alvin, Brookside Village, Iowa Colony, Hillcrest and Liverpool.
When Ed Thompson came to Pearland thirty years ago, it was a small town on the outskirts of Houston. Although the area has grown by leaps and bounds, it is still a tight-knit community grounded in conservative values. And Ed Thompson is one of the people working hard and giving back to make it even better.
Although many know Ed as their local insurance agent, he has a long record of dedication to his community. Ed served as Mayor Pro-Tem of Pearland, where he fought for good policies that help local families and businesses thrive. He has helped implement a pro-job creation environment as Past Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Past President of the Economic Development Corporation. And he worked to ensure the best quality education, while preparing for rapid population growth, during his time on the Pearland ISD Board of Trustees.
Ed is a principled business and family man who knows that if we want to preserve our way of life, we need good leaders who will get in the game. He recently retired from 40 years of officiating high school football games, so he knows a little something about this. He also knows that even when you make the right decision, it is not always the popular decision. But you still have to do what is right.
2013 marked Ed's first session as a State Representative, finishing the 83rd regular session and three special sessions in Austin. He passed 11 of the 15 bills he filed, was ranked in the top 30 members of the House by Empower Texans, was named a Courageous Conservative by the Texas Conservative Coalition, a Lone Star Conservative Guardian by the Texas Conservative Roundtable, a Top Conservative by the Eagle Forum, and received a 100% Rating from Concerned Women of America of Texas. He is a member of the House Committee on Environmental Regulation and House Committee on Special Purpose Districts.
A graduate of the University of Houston with a BBA in Finance, Ed is a devoted husband to his wife Freddie, dedicated father to his two children, and loving grandfather to his four grandchildren. The Thompson family attends Sagemont Church.last updated on 09/17/2014
