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.

Prayers for the family

Just another tax and spend politician. Now he wants to tax people with electric vehicles, for not buying his owners' gas. Can't wait to see what the government will force us to buy next!

PLEASE vote no on HB547/SB491.

It doesn't seem all that long ago that Republican insurrectionists - armed with rifles, chemical weapons, clubs, etc. - attacked our Capitol and left law enforcement officers wounded and killed. Please spare the country you faux political support of law enforcement in an attempt to curry votes and financial support.

You've taken a hippocratic oath to do no harm yet you are a sell out to dirty Big Oil & gas. Shame on you.

How about Brian Sicknick? I don't recall anyone in your party caring about his life, taken by right wing traitors storming the Capitol on 1/6 at the behest of Donald Trump.

We need gun control. Not prayer.

You want people to pay an extra tax for not using fossil fuels, cause you’re a fossil. You’re a terrible person, from a real American, from a state that subsidizes you, you pathetic half wit.
