Election Day is May 29th: As Conservative Christian Voters, We Need to go to the Polls

Dear Friends,

As we approach the end of Early Voting and Election Day, I cannot impress upon you enough the importance of going to the polls and voting. Every vote cast in this election will determine the future of our state and nation. Now more than ever it is imperative to stay involved and ensure that true conservative leaders are elected to office.

Below I have listed some of the endorsements and awards I have been fortunate to receive since the end of session.  It is always nice to be recognized for ones accomplishments, but more importantly, these serve as a reminder of my core values.  Activist groups tend to pride themselves on holding legislators accountable.  They only grant their endorsements and awards to those legislators that have held true to their core values when votes were made.  I never made a vote with a “recognition” or “punishment” in mind from any group, rather I chose to think about what was best for my constituents and the great State of Texas.  However, these acknowledgements recognize my core beliefs of less government, pro-business, pro-life, pro-family, and individual responsibility.

Recognitions for my voting record during the 82nd Session

  • 3rd most conservative member of the Texas House
  • Defender of Life from Texas Right To Life
  • Taxpayer Champion Award from Texans For Fiscal Responsibility
  • Courageous Conservative from Texas Conservative Coalition
  • Honorary Member from Texas Eagle Forum
  • “A” rated by Texas State Rifle Association and National Rifle Association

I was ranked the 3rd most conservative member in the Texas House because I stood for fiscal responsibility, limited government, and the common sense, conservative, Christian values that still prevail in West Texas. I want to leave you with a quote on our obligation as voters:

“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded. If [our] government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws.” -Noah Webster

Please share this message with your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Most importantly, make sure you cast your vote in the 2012 Primary Election on Tuesday, May 29th.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me, more information is available on my website www.CharlesPerryForTexas.com.

Best wishes to you and your family for a safe and blessed Memorial Day!

Sincerely yours,




State Representative — House District 83
