Charlie Stenholm

Rep. Stenholm was a representative from Texas for 26 years. While in Congress, he served on the Agriculture Committee and was founder and coordinator of the Conservative Democratic Forum in the 1980s. Stenholm consistently advanced fiscal responsibility in the federal budget. The balanced budget plans which Stenholm crafted in both the 104th and 105th Congresses with a group of moderate and conservative Democrats known as the "Blue Dog Coalition" have received wide national acclaim as the most honest, pragmatic, and fair proposals on the table. Currently, Mr. Stenholm is a senior policy advisor at Olsson Frank Weeda, P.C.
