Rep. John Carter

Congressman John Carter, serving in his 11th term, represents Texas’s 31st District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He currently serves as the Chairman of the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Committee and sits on the Commerce, Justice and Science subcommittee and the Defense subcommittee.

He was appointed District Judge for the 277th District Court in Williamson County. During that time, he aptly earned the nickname that stuck with him to this day; “Judge”. On the bench, he was known for his no-nonsense approach to keeping the community safe. In fact, it was this mentality that encouraged him to run for Congress in 2002.
