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.

Ugh. A Blue Lives Matter flag? Really? That symbol of police violence and white supremacy? There are ways to honor the fallen without catering to racism, sir.

This was in May. Are you intentionally being obtuse? No mention of the protests in your timeline, no sympathy for the victims of police brutality. But you celebrate a day that happened over a month ago, and with the thin blue line flag no less? And yes, it's a symbol of police brutality. Because the only time it's brought out is when the police victimize somebody.

Is there going to be a “fallen victims killed by police” day?

Isn’t this in May? But yes, behind our officers and for full reform, recognizing that my experience is not the experience all people of the united states get from our justice department and police officers. You want to do something for our local police...pay them better.

God bless

Prayers for their families.

Same for you and the family!!!

Will you hold Abbott accountable for his efforts at banana-republic dictatorship? If the GOP Convention and Texas Legislature doesn't vote to push for Abbott's impeachment due to violating the Texas Constitution with his rule-by-fiat executive orders, then there's no reason to vote Republican anymore.... #BananaRepublicDictator #ImpeachFidelAbbott #GovernorKaren #DemocratInDisguise #SpecialSessionNOW #NoContactTracingEver #DoNotComply #OpenTexasNOW

Celebrating freedom while we still have it,


Next time it comes up for a Vote, I'm formally Requesting that Dan Patrick be ousted from office.
