Democratic candidate for governor Bill White says his opponent, Gov. Rick Perry, is a part-time governor.
White on Thursday released copies of Perry's schedules from January through May. White said Perry worked about seven hours a week during the time period. Perry was campaigning for re-election from January until the early March primary.
White spokeswoman Katy Bacon criticized Perry for not making time to meet with officials about the projected $18 billion budget shortfall the state is expected to face next year. The schedules do show several meetings with House Speaker Joe Straus, Comptroller Susan Combs and others.
