ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Lee Manross, TAHU Lobbyist
Lee Manross joined the TAHU legislative team in 2001, after more than two decades of work in the insurance business. Combining his insurance experience with earlier work in the legislative and political arenas allowed him to bring a deep understanding as one of TAHU’s lobbyists about the way things work in the Texas Legislature.
Lee recently finished his 16th legislative session as point man on the TAHU legislative front. Those sessions included five regular sessions which take place every other year for 140 days and 11 special sessions which were called for a variety of subjects.
Lee’s initiation into politics came as an intern in the office of the late Austin Congressman J. J. “Jake” Pickle and in a variety of Texas political campaigns. He worked at the state capitol for two House of Representatives committees, State Rep. Dan Kubiak, and later drew on his communication and newspaper backgrounds in working for the Texas Secretary of State, the Texas Constitutional Convention and State Comptroller Bob Bullock.
Lee’s insurance background is almost as varied. He owned his own “scratch” P&C agency in the 1980s which he developed into a full, multi-line agency offering a wide array of business and personal P&C products as well as life and health insurance plans. He also worked as employee benefits specialist with two Austin P&C agencies.
For relaxation and pleasure, Lee likes to talk politics (?), run (slowly), read junk novels, and cook. He has no cats or dogs and only one ex-wife.
