Candidate for City Council
"Every man I meet is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him." - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Eric B. Dick is a Houston lawyer and small business owner that is best known protecting civil rights as he defended a blogger that was controversially imprisoned from a lawsuit filed by the mother of the late Anna Nicole Smith. Eric is deeply intertwined in the history and tradition of Texas as a third-generation native Houstonian; his relative, Jacob Darst, fought and died at the Alamo.
Eric worked his way through community college, college, and law school - receiving a scholarship and graduating cum laude. Eric is a local guy with local roots and attended Houston Community College, University of Houston, and University of Houston-Downtown.
Eric fought for criminal justice by serving with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office in the Welfare Fraud Division. While working in the Attorney General’s Office, in the Special Litigation & Tobacco Law Division, Eric was involved in the largest civil settlement in U.S. history which involved over $200 billion dollars. Additionally, Eric loathes taxation so much that he earned an advanced degree in Taxation (LL.M.), making him the most educated and qualified candidate for City Council.
When asked why he would want to run for city council, Eric said, “You know I am tired of listening to people who are disenfranchised by the whole political process. I’d like to give Houstonians a real candidate that will stand up for them and be candid with them - not someone who is just running to develop business contracts for some construction company that deals with the city. What does the city have to gain from me being a city councilmember? A citizen who loves the city, and will zealously fight and protect her, that has a long family history with public service – for example, my father is a retired captain in Houston Fire Department and my grandfather served our county as a US Marine Corps. Sgt. and a captain in Harris County Sheriff’s Office.”
When asked why he is choosing to run at this time, Eric said, “Houston is in a financial deficit. My fear is that the city will look to home and small business owners to cover the majority of this deficit through increases in fees and property taxes. I cannot, in good conscience, sit here and just let leave the little guy to fend for himself.”
