Previously, Brady was appointed by President Obama as the Vermont and New Hampshire State Director for USDA Rural Development, where he oversaw the administration of more than $1 billion in housing, business, and community development loans and grants. Brady spent more than a decade working as a community and economic development liaison in U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy’s office, both in Washington, D.C. and in Vermont.
Brady lives in Williston with his wife, Vermont Rep. Erin Brady, and their two children. He serves on the boards of the Vermont Council on Rural Development and the Champlain Valley Exposition.
