State Rep. Charles Perry of Lubbock was endorsed for re-election by Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.
“Charles Perry proved himself to be a strong, commonsense conservative who put the needs of his constituents ahead of the special interests in Austin,” said the president of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Michael Quinn Sullivan. “Vote after vote, issue after issue, Charles Perry could be counted on to do what was best for his constituents, the people of Texas, and future of the state’s economy.”
Perry earned the “Taxpayer Champion Award” for his rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index, which examines legislators recorded votes during the legislative session.
Sullivan praised Perry for his “substantive, practical” approach to public policy issues. In the 2010 primary, Perry defeated a long-serving committee chairman who ran on his seniority and standing with the leadership and lobby.
