You’d be hard-pressed to find Lacey Hull without her partner trailing two steps behind her. Whether it’s an early morning trip to the Capitol, a long day of block walking for candidates in the Houston heat, or managing her precinct as a precinct chair, Hull and her son Owen have not met a political challenge that hasn’t been faced with dogged determination.
A homeschool mom and native Houstonian, Hull has dedicated countless hours to advancing the conservative movement in Houston and around the state. In the most recent primary, she spent four—and sometimes five days a week—block walking, phone banking, and whatever else necessary for local campaigns.
“I have always had an interest in politics, and majored in political science and history. But I was only ever just a voter. It wasn’t until I was living in California that I became politically active,” Hull said. “I got involved to try and stop several liberty-eroding bills in that state. I was shocked to see some legislators in Texas trying to pass similar bills. I flew out to Texas during that time to help stop those bills and have my voice heard.”
Since returning back to Texas, Hull’s activism has remained steady. She has helped on campaigns for State Rep. Valoree Swanson and State Rep. Briscoe Cain, as well as judicial candidate Erin Swanson—and these are just some of the more recent races.
“My wife and I have known Lacey for just under three years now. We’ve enjoyed watching her grow into a five-star, full-blown patriot and activist,” said Cain. “A busy mom and committed wife, Lacey somehow finds time to block walk and phone bank for campaigns. Moreover, one would be hard-pressed to find a conservative candidate for whom Lacey and her husband Trevor have contributed financially to in a large way. This is because they understand that being an informed, educated, and active taxpayer goes much further than money ever could.”
Last legislative session, Hull delivered a powerful testimony on House Bill 2249 which would have publicized student records on immunization exemptions. “I’m a proud Texan and a proud military wife; I’m so thankful for my husband,” [tearfully] continuing, “who fought for my rights. One right [is] being able to speak in front of you today.” Hull wrapped up by telling the committee, “My son is my responsibility, it is my responsibility to keep him safe and healthy. The responsibility for my son does not fall on the state or any other family.”
When asked why she remains involved, Hull names her son as the primary reason. “…becoming a parent and realizing just how important personal liberties are. Texas is a great, liberty-loving state and it needs to be kept that way!”
Hull encourages others to get involved.
“It’s so easy to get out and make a difference. Reach out to a campaign you believe in and see what they need help with, block-walking or even putting out signs. Talk to your elected officials about issues and even current bills you care about. Call their office and make an appointment to go in. Make your voice heard.”
Hull and her husband Trevor live in Houston with their son Owen. Outside of her political involvement, she loves to cook and travel.
