Louie Gohmert

Louie Gohmert Serving his fifth term in the United States House of Representatives, Congressman Louie Gohmert was first sworn in January 4, 2005. He proudly represents the First District of Texas which encompasses over 12 counties stretching nearly 120 miles down the state's eastern border.

Louie did not go to Washington to get a title and that is why to everyone he meets he is just “Louie.” What you see is what you get!

As Congressman, Louie has developed innovative solutions to jumpstart our economy and offered practical alternatives to the government's bailout frenzy. His “Federal Income Tax Holiday” gained widespread national support from the grassroots level to national leaders, allowing taxpayers to decide how best to spend their hard-earned money.

Louie serves on the prestigious House Judiciary committee and was recently named Vice Chair of the subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security. Louie’s extensive legal knowledge and background as a former no-nonsense judge is a major asset in working through the matters that come before this committee. In addition, Louie serves on the House Natural Resources committee which oversees everything from domestic energy production to mining, public lands and much, much more. Louie serves on the Energy and Mineral Resources subcommittee as well as the National Parks, Forests, and Public Lands subcommittee.

Prior to being elected to serve in Congress, Louie was elected to three terms as District Judge in Smith County, Texas. During his tenure on the bench, he gained national and international attention for some of his creative rulings. He was later appointed by Texas Governor Rick Perry to complete a term as Chief Justice of the 12th Court of Appeals.

Louie received his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and later graduated from Baylor School of Law. He is also a veteran having served his country as Captain in the U.S. Army.

Today, he and his wife Kathy are the proud parents of three daughters. Their family attends Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, where Louie serves as a deacon and still teaches Sunday school.

TURF Voter Guide (Texas)


Anti-toll groups release Voter Guide, endorsements

Toll issue could sway vote in many key, contested races

(San Antonio, TX - Wednesday, February 3, 2016) As voters contemplate who to vote for in the upcoming March 1 primary, anti-toll groups Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (TURF) and Texans for Toll-free Highways (TTH), Political Action Committee, released its Voter Guide and endorsements, respectively.

Many incumbents received poor grades on TURF's Legislative Report Cards and their challengers, in contrast, received high grades. Over 300 grassroots groups statewide rely on TURF and TTH for transportation issues. In the 2014 election cycle, anti-toll candidates swept key races with the biggest prize at the top with the ascension of Governor Greg Abbott. 

The toll issue is particularly thorny in the race for House District 2 where incumbent Dan Flynn is facing anti-toll challenger Bryan Slaton, who led the fight to defeat the proposed private Blacklands tollway from Garland to Greenville. Speaker Joe Straus faces a strong challenge from two very strong anti-toll opponents, Jeff Judson and Sheila Bean, in House District 121 where the US 281 toll road battle has riled residents in the corridor for over a decade. 

Straus came in late in the game in 2015 claiming credit for converting the project back to non-toll at the eleventh hour, but his past committee chair of House Transportation, Larry Phillips, consistently blocked anti-toll bills for several sessions, leading to a prolonged anti-toll battle in San Antonio. Many lay the blame for the tolling of 281 at the feet of Straus. 

The two groups will be carefully watching races across Texas and weighing in on the toll issue to make sure voters know where the candidates stand.

TURF is a non-partisan, grassroots, all-volunteer group defending citizens' concerns with toll road policy, public private partnerships, and eminent domain abuse. TURF promotes pro-taxpayer, pro-freedom, & non-toll transportation solutions. For more information or to support the work of TURF, please visit www.TexasTURF.org.

Texans for Toll-free Highways is a non-partisan political action committee also working to keep our highways toll-free. For more information or to support the work of TTH, please visit www.TollfreeHighways.com.
