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.

I am devastated by the reports of a mass shooting in Bryan and the shooting of a DPS trooper in Iola. This is an ongoing situation and my office is working with Governor Abbott’s staff to offer state assistance to local law enforcement. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the first responders working to keep everyone safe from this senseless tragedy. ... See MoreSee Less

As usual thoughts and prayers but no action. Thoughts and prayers do nothing to stop the carnage.

We look to priests for thoughts and prayers...legislators are looked to for legislation...get to work and stop offering useless platitudes after every tragedy.

🙏🙏🙏

We need more than thoughts and prayers. We need commonsense gun laws.

Keep being devastated. They’ll keep happening. Thanks for nothing.

Please. You went right from this to posting about your valiant attempts to defend the gun industry and to protect our 2nd Amendment rights from nonexistent threats. Thoughts and prayers are utterly meaningless without substantive action.

I pay attention to actions not words.

Yet your answers the same everytime do nothing because nothings wrong...

But not devastated enough to do something about the problem of mass shootings. Your previous posts shows that you are actually part of this problem.

Fuck you. I know what you did. Stop letting gun manufacturers away with murder. Gun laws do not mean allowing more guns. We need less and regulations about who can have them. "Well regulated militia"

We have no inpatient mental health services in Bryan/College Station. In less than a month, two Bryan men with guns have made national news. Let's get a bill to provide mental health services so folks don't have to keep going to Austin for care. Let's provide conflict management and de-escalation training for our workplaces and schools.

Yet you have another post about the President coming for your guns. Stop being a coward and push for current loopholes and massive clips to be shut down.
