Meet Dr. Schwertner

Schwertner for Texas 2019

Senator Charles Schwertner is a physician, family man, business owner, and a life-long fiscal and social conservative. In 2010, Schwertner was first elected to serve the people of House District 20 as a member of the Texas House of Representatives. There, he quickly earned a reputation as a measured and effective legislator, working with his colleagues to pass one of the most conservative legislative agendas in Texas history.

In 2012, Schwertner won the Republican Primary for the Texas Senate (District 5) with nearly 75 percent of the vote. Senate District 5 is a ten-county region of Central and East Texas that includes Brazos, Freestone, Grimes, Leon, Limestone, Madison, Milam, Robertson, Walker and Williamson Counties.

Throughout his time in the Texas Senate, Senator Schwertner has fought for the families in his district by supporting retired teachers, working to make higher education more affordable, and protecting children from abuse and neglect by reforming the Department of Family and Protective Services. Schwertner has also worked to protect our seniors by authoring legislation to improve nursing homes and punish bad actors in the industry. In the Senate, Dr. Schwertner serves on the Senate Committees on Business and Commerce, Veteran Affairs & Border Security, Agriculture, and Transportation, as well as serving as the Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Intergovernmental Relations.

For his leadership in the Texas Legislature, Senator Schwertner has been named a “Taxpayer Advocate” by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, a “Fighter for Free Enterprise” by the Texas Association of Business, a “Courageous Conservative” by the Texas Conservative Coalition, a “Lone Star Conservative Leader” by the Texas Conservative Roundtable, and “Senate Freshman of the Year” by Texas Monthly magazine. Additionally, Senator Schwertner has been named a CASA Champion for Texas Children, YMCA Champion, and Legislator of the Year by the Texas Assisted Living Association.

Charles comes from six generations of farming and ranching in Texas. In addition to his role in the Texas Legislature, Dr. Schwertner also works as a practicing orthopedic surgeon, treating thousands of patients each year. He and his wife Belinda (an obstetrician/gynecologist) reside in Georgetown with their three sons: Carson, Zachary, and Matthew.

Superspreader! And lots of seniors too 🙁


I see a problem.

Love to see a physician flagrantly disregarding public health recommendations.

Ya he’s a bone doctor and people need to get off that mask bull

When was this? Many of these people look like they may be in high a risk group! Zero masks? There is an actual pandemic.

If I'd known we wouldn't be masked raped at the door, I may have come.

Go Dem's 🇺🇸

Shhhh, let Darwin do his thing. These fools think their dear leader knows better.

Super spreader event

Glad you like to eat s**t Senator.

No wonder Texas is on it’s way to being No. 1 in the US for Covid cases.

You're a doctor, in a crowded place with no masks in sight, during a pandemic? Yikes.

You are a Doctor where is your mask and no one is Social distancing. WHY

Great picture! So good to see you!

Wow, as a Dr., I'm sure you'll volunteer for the contract tracing that will be going on there shortly.

Sad to see a doctor and elected leader not following public health guidelines. Masks and Social Distancing are to protect others not you. It’s Selfless and not Selfish, why is it so hard for so many to not want to do something to help others?

Please vote for Biden/ Democrats

Zero masks. Shame on you

Yeah let’s just get real about something else. Besides everything else a Trump has done in his Wotless see a 47 months versus some other idiots 47 years. Along with getting everything that everybody needed because of the pandemic yes like I said the more you test the more you’re going to find but until you can display all the numbers you’re full of BS so all I’m saying is there is a cure and it’s going to Along with everything else that he’s got here at operation warp speed. You people need to give thanks for thanks it’s needed he’s done one hell of a job pull your head out of your backside and realize that let’s get on with our lives because he’s right the cure cannot be worse. Go trump 2020

Not a mask in sight, Doctor? Lord, Republicans are really killing themselves off, aren't they?
