A long-time Baytown resident has announced his intentions to bid for Texas House District 128. Terry Sain calls himself a Reagan Republican and said he is ready to ensure the Deer Park-Baytown region is safe, strong and prosperous. He is a member of Baytown City Council and is on numerous boards and civic organizations

Terry SainSAINTerry Sain, a long-time community leader and current Baytown City Council member, has announced his intentions to run for the State Representative seat of House District 128. Sain is a 20-year resident of Baytown, but has lived in the area since 1975.

“I’ve been blessed to live in this community for the past 40-plus years. Some of the most decent, hardworking people you’ll ever meet call this area home. I want to do my part in making our community safer, stronger, and prosperous for the next 40 years. My sleeves are rolled up. I’m all in,” he said.

Sain is employed by LCY Elastomers LP as manager of the Environmental, Health, and Safety Department, having served in this position for over 22 years. His professional affiliations are memberships in the American Society of Safety Engineers, Texas Association of Environmental Professionals, and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. In addition, Mr. Sain serves on the Industrial Safety Training Council Baytown Advisory Board and on the Baytown Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Chamber’s Crime Prevention and Safety Committee.

A life-long Republican, Councilman Sain’s involvement in the area of city government includes service on the following City of Baytown committees and boards: Municipal Development District, Tax Increment Re-Investment Zone No. 1/Baytown Redevelopment Authority, and Architectural & Engineering, where he serves as chairman. He currently serves on the Houston-Galveston Area Council Board of Directors, an organization comprised of 13 counties that oversee expenditures for state and federally funded projects. Councilman Sain is also a member of the Harris County Mayors' and Councils' Association, having served in the progression or officers up through President.

“As a Reagan Republican who can remember the day when we were the party of ideas, leadership, and conservative principles that raised people up, not cut them down, I will strive to bring fiscal responsibility, civility, and innovation to Austin,” Sain said.

His wife, Judy Sain, is an elementary school teacher with the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District. They have two children who graduated from Ross S. Sterling High School. Daughter Whitney and son Cody, who with his wife, the former Maureen Fiecas of Highlands, have four sons, Gregory, Gabriel, Stephen, and Samuel. He and his wife are members of the First Baptist Church of Baytown, where Terry serves as vice-chairman on the Board of Deacons.

“Being State Representative is not a political stepping stone for me. It is a privilege, responsibility, and duty to serve all of our residents and help them reach their God-given potential. That is the foundation of my faith. Being a grandfather, I want to set the proper example for public service so that we can build a better Texas and District 128. There’s no time to waste on immature political games,” Sain said.

Over the past 20 years, Sain has had the opportunity to get more involved in civic organizations, giving him insight into the issues we face as families and communities living in District 128. Terry is a member of the Rotary Club of Baytown, serving as club president from 2004-2005, and served two terms as Assistant District Governor for the clubs of Deer Park and Highlands.

In addition to his leadership positions within Rotary, Sain sits on the advisory boards of the Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Center and the Baytown Crime Stoppers. He is a current member of the Baytown Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, too.

“Today, I start my campaign to hear your concerns, earn your trust, and show you that your support will never be taken for granted. As our region is in the middle of massive growth, I want to focus on developing smarter, long-term infrastructure initiatives, investing in our local schools and community colleges, helping our businesses create and preserve jobs, and making sure that state government is part of the solution, not the problem,” Sain concluded.
