John Baucum
President Emeritus

John recently married his beautiful wife Danielle and they are enjoying starting their life together. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Geography. John’s interest in geography began by traveling with his father across the United States. During his youth, John’s family hosted exchange students from Denmark, Brazil, Spain, and Germany.

Professionally, he works in Information Technology and Geographic Information Systems. As a GIS Support Analyst, John has an eye for detail and the creativity to solve problems. His work has also included consulting jobs at major energy companies in the Houston area. In his spare time, John enjoys collecting election data and doing spatial analysis on voting trends. Technology is a very powerful tool to build networks and spread information. GIS helps to identify areas for targeting and identifying new individuals that are ready to get involved as grassroots activists to change bad laws.

He has served as the Treasurer of the Houston Young Republicans and was a founding member and former Treasurer of the Houston Republican Liberty Caucus. He is also the current Political Director for Republicans Against Marijuana Prohibition (RAMP). John is active with many other clubs in Houston as he continues to build onto the grassroots network in Harris County and beyond.
