Senator Schwertner Files for Re-Election

Published on November 14, 2017 by Larry Crippen

Today, Republican State Senator Charles Schwertner filed for reelection to Texas Senate District 5. Schwertner has served in the Texas Senate since 2013 and previously served in the Texas House of Representatives.

Today I am honored to file for reelection to the Texas Senate,” said Schwertner. “It’s a great honor to represent the people of District 5, and I am very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.”

In the Texas Senate, Schwertner has focused on securing the border, lowering business and property taxes, improving public and higher education, protecting private property owners from eminent domain abuse, funding the state’s 50-year water plan, defending the unborn and leading the fight against Obamacare and Medicaid expansion.

Additionally, Schwertner has fought to protect Texas children by improving the state’s Child Protective Services agency. Last session he authored and passed legislation that made major reforms to CPS, earning praise from Governor Abbott who had made CPS reform a top priority.
