Hello Collin County Voters,

My name is Courtney Brooks, and I am running for Collin County Commissioner in precinct 1 as a Democrat. I am a mom to eight kids and a very proud Army wife to my husband, Jeremy, a foster mom and a cancer survivor. I’m running because I believe that the County Commissioners can lead real reform to improve the services, economic upward mobility, and a path forward for all our residents.

My passion to serve the community has always been front and center. I worked for HomeAid/Home Builder’s Care, the nonprofit arm of the Dallas Builders Association, as a PTA President, as a juvenile detention officer in Dallas county and as a juvenile probation officer in Fannin County, where I used my bachelor’s degree in criminology to help juvenile delinquents make better choices. After deciding to stay home to raise my children, I opened a licensed in-home daycare in Melissa and McKinney. I have built my life on community service, accountability and integrity.

I believe the people of Collin County deserve the County Commissioners who will be more accessible, transparent and responsive and I have a lot of ideas for how to make that happen. My commitment is to treat each resident of Collin County as I would like to be treated: with respect, kindness, honesty and fairness. I will always listen to residents, business leaders and nonprofits to develop and execute decisions that make sense for Collin County.
