Dr. Carolyn Salter is a physician, former mayor, and small town advocate who is running for representative for the Texas 5th district. In 2005 she was elected mayor of Palestine and spent her term in office protecting and nurturing the small town economics that are the heart of our great country. After her tenure as mayor she remained an active part of the community by serving on committees and participating in local politics. Carolyn watched the economics of her town and those around her suffer under the pressure of big businesses wanting to do business in these communities only after getting tax breaks and other incentives while mostly offering lower wages, part time work or few benefits.
She is taking the fight for the American small town to our nation’s capital. She will make sure the voice of Texas is heard loud and clear and will hold all parties accountable for protecting the heart of the nation. Carolyn wants to see the 5th district grow and strengthen and will work hard, like everyone from the district, to make that happen.
Carolyn lives in Palestine, Texas with her husband Dr. Michael Gorby. She has one son, Scott, who lives and works in Dallas.
It’s time for a Texas doctor in the House!
