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.

Being #TexasTough was exemplified by William Travis on this day in 1836 when he wrote to his fellow Texans declaring that he would never surrender or retreat from the Alamo. Today, Texans still don’t back down from a challenge – the Lone Star State will always be Texas tough!

Business & Commerce public hearing tomorrow @ 9AM to examine:
-Extreme weather preparedness
-Power outages directed by ERCOT
-Generator preparedness
-Utility outage practices
-Natural gas supply
-Renewable generation reliability

It was an honor to present this Senate Resolution on the floor today. Please join my colleagues and me in recognizing the heroic efforts of the electrical utility line and generation workers of Texas during the catastrophic #WinterStorm2021. #txlege

Well, Ted Cruz did back down and go to Cancun so there’s that...

Stop the sloganeering my man. Let’s go for Texas Stable!

We wouldn't have to be so "Texas tough" if our state government weren't so Republican stupid.

Their toughness was spent trying to defend their rights to own human beings against an anti-slavery Mexican government. Such a waste of lives.
