Jack Tyler Baines is a candidate for the Master of Public Affairs (DC Concentration) at the LBJ School and a teaching assistant for the finance department at the McCombs School of Business. He completed his undergraduate degrees with honors at The University of Texas at Austin, obtaining two bachelor’s degrees in history and government and the business foundation certificate. While earning his bachelor’s, Baines gained a greater understanding of the legislature by interning for Texas State Rep. Ryan Guillen (D-31). After graduating, he spent a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA organizing and mobilizing low-income communities for the City of Dallas Planning and Urban Design Department. Overall, his experiences have taught him the innate interconnectedness between community engagement and data application in the policy development process.

Baines hopes to find a data-driven Policy Apprenticeship in DC focused on stimulating our most vulnerable communities.

Policy interests: Health care, labor protections, criminal justice
