Gov. Rick Perry's appointments finally have Texans on their knees...

Texans are hurting...

It is often stated that the weakest political position in Texas is that of the Governor. However, the weak role the Governor plays over the legislative process is more than made up by the appointed positions he makes.

In addition to rewarding wealthy contributors to high salary positions, Rick Perry ensures that his views and policies are met in various state agencies and organizations. These agencies are the heart of Texas government and drive the state's agendas and direction. It is no wonder that so many Texans are now first feeling the economic and social plight that the Perry administration has developed and implemented during the past 11 years.

Appointed Positions

This is a list of all entities to which the Governor makes appointments.

More detailed information on each entity is available via the Texas Records and Information Locator (TRAIL). TRAIL provides links to most agencies' background information, web pages, and the text of statutes.
