Casey Curry for Houston City Council

Forecasting a Brighter Future for Houston

“Where Leadership and Community Weather All Storms Together.”

casey curry family

Many of you know me from my more than a decade on Houston television as a broadcast meteorologist. I was the trusted expert for many Houstonians for severe weather events like hurricanes, floods, dangerous heat waves, and winter storms.

Now more than ever, we need a Houston City Councilmember who will consider climate change, disaster preparedness and weather into every policy decision facing our region.

The time is now to plan the future of our city for our children. We must acknowledge our current climate situation and continue to invest in efforts to mitigate future impacts on our city.

I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and do the hard work representing every Houstonian as your next member of Houston City Council. I’m counting on your vote to help Houston prepare to weather the next storm.

Meet Casey

Many of you know Casey as a meteorologist and television personality. From Hurricane Ike to Hurricane Harvey, numerous winter storms and everything in between – Casey was the trusted expert for many Houstonians during our region’s extreme weather events.

She recently entered the corporate world and works in philanthropy and communications.
Casey is also a wife and mom. She and her husband Carl are proud parents to nine-year-old Winnie.

Her whole life was a bit of an adventure. Her dad was in the Army…so the family traveled and moved around a lot! Casey was born in Panama and became a U.S. citizen when she was a teenager. She attended nine elementary schools growing up, including one in Germany.


Giving Back

Casey spends much of her time encouraging young people to pursue a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). You will often find her speaking to students about her career.


Casey serves on the board of directors of the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce, an organization dedicated to empowering women to reach new heights.

Passion For Service

Casey volunteers with The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Resiliency as part of their Doc Talk program and is a fixture in Houston’s animal rescue community.


Casey’s Priorities

Flooding & Storm Resilience

Houston must have better infrastructure that protects our residents and our economy from flooding, hurricanes, and extreme temperatures.

As a former meteorologist, I am uniquely qualified to advocate at the local, state, and national levels and find innovative solutions for all Houstonians.

Invest in green infrastructure solutions, such as rain gardens and permeable pavements, to reduce stormwater runoff and alleviate pressure on our stormwater system.
Partner with private industry and academia to develop innovative flood control technologies and solutions.
Work with federal and state agencies to secure funding for flood mitigation projects.
As your next Council Member, I will prioritize equitable investments in infrastructure projects that will benefit all Houstonians, not just those in certain neighborhoods.

Safe Communities

Safety is a top concern for every person and business owner I speak with.

I will prioritize recruiting and retaining more police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. We must ensure our first responders have the resources they need to serve and protect our community.

Identify new revenue streams to fund more HPD cadet classes, such as grants or public-private partnerships.
Work with community leaders and organizations to develop innovative programs that attract diverse candidates to join HPD.
Open and honest communication between city officials, our first responders and the public is critical to transparency and accountability.

Economic Development & Workforce of the Future

Now is the time to prepare our workforce for the future.

That means finding solutions to address the current mismatch between employer needs and the skills of current job seekers. But it also means changing the way we think about education for our youngest Houstonians, like partnering with our friends in labor to find creative solutions to train our workforce with skills that can lead to lifelong careers, with fair wages and solid benefits.

We must work together to combat the barriers to the economic vitality of our city:

Support our small businesses, which are a vital part of our economy.
Improve the maintenance and repair of our streets, sidewalks, and public transportation systems to ensure that they are safe and accessible.
Expand and improve public transportation options, including bus and rail, to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality.
Collaborate with our public and private stakeholders to address the mental health challenges of our young people.
