Houle currently serves on the Boards of Advantage Behavioral Health Systems and the Industrial Development Authority. Previously, Houle worked as the Operations Manager of Nuçi’s Space, a non-profit focusing on suicide prevention and support for local musicians, and as the Outreach Coordinator of the progressive advocacy group Athens for Everyone.
Transforming Athens — During their 2020 campaign, Houle had an in-depth platform detailing their plans to move Athens leftward, including living wages for all workers, racial justice, a Green New Deal in Athens, affordable housing, participatory budgeting and more.
Pedestrian Safety — Houle is a proponent of improving pedestrian safety throughout Athens but especially in District 6. Houle helped their constituents write two TSPLOST 2023 projects to improve pedestrian safety in historically under-served areas, including the Stonehenge and Westchester neighborhoods. These projects were funded in the final TSPLOST list, in no small part due to Houle’s advocacy. Houle also successfully pushed for Athens renters to get the same respect as homeowners in the county’s formal process for requesting traffic calming for their neighborhoods.
Prison Abolition — Houle wore a shirt saying “Abolish prison” when they were sworn in on November 17, 2020. They have publicly supported Commissioners Mariah Parker and Tim Denson’s plan to reinvest 50% of ACCPD funding into the community over a period of 10 years.
