Agency History

The governor of Texas is the chief executive officer of the state, elected by the citizens every four years. The duties and responsibilities of the governor include serving as commander-in-chief of the state's military forces; convening special sessions of the legislature for specific purposes; delivering to the legislature at the beginning of each regular session a report on the condition of the state, an accounting of all public money under the governor's control, a recommended biennial budget, an estimate of the amounts of money required to be raised by taxation, and any recommendations he deems necessary; signing or vetoing bills passed by the legislature; and executing the laws of the state. The governor can grant reprieves and commutations of punishment and pardons, upon the recommendation of the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and revoke conditional pardons. He appoints numerous state officials (with the consent of the senate), fills vacancies in state and district offices (except vacancies in the legislature), calls special elections to fill vacancies in the legislature, fills vacancies in the United States Senate until an election can be held, and serves as ex officio member of several state boards.

The office of governor was first established by the Constitution of 1845 and superseded the office of president of the Republic of Texas. The position now exists under authority of Article IV, Section 1 of the Constitution of 1876 and Texas Government Code, Chapter 401. To be elected governor, a person must be at least thirty years old, a United States citizen, and a resident of Texas for at least five years preceding the election. In 1972, the term of office was extended from two to four years, effective in 1975. Since 1856 the governor has had the use of the Governor's Mansion.

In 2014 there were 277.4 full time equivalent employees in the Office of the Governor. Nineteen divisions outside of the Executive Office assist the governor in carrying out his functions: Scheduling and Advance; Office of the First Lady; Administration; Appointments; Legislative; Communications; Budget, Planning, and Policy; General Counsel; Internal Audit; Constituent Communication; Criminal Justice; Economic Development and Tourist Development; Governor's Commission for Women; Office of Financial Accountability; Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities; Texas Film Commission; Texas Music Office; Texas Workforce Investment Council; and Office of State-Federal Relations.

The Texas Music Office (TMO) promotes the development of the music industry of Texas. Among the services the TMO provides is acting as a clearing house for industry information, making referrals to Texas music businesses, talent and events, liaising between the Texas music community and state government agencies, and the publication of significant events within the industry. The TMO regularly releases a number of instructional and informational resources towards these ends, including the encyclopedia Handbook of Texas Music and the industry primer Getting Started In The Music Business. The TMO also promotes Texas music at a number of annual industry events, especially the South by Southwest festival, during which it stages the Capitol Salute to Texas Music for state legislators and industry notables.

The TMO was founded in 1985 as the Texas Music Commission by act of Legislature (Senate Bill 140, 69th Texas Legislature, Regular Session). The TMC was a nine-member advisory board appointed by the Governor that held hearings for and issued annual reports to the Legislature regarding the production and development of the Texas music industry. The Commission was replaced in 1990 by the TMO, which was established as a sister office to the Texas Film Commission. The TMO officially opened January 20, 1990 with the newly-hired Casey J. Monahan as director. The TMO moved from the Texas Department of Commerce's Business Development Division to the Office of the Governor after Ann Richards became governor in 1991. Monahan would remain the head of TMO until the end of Perry's term of office in 2015.

Rick Perry Biographical Sketch

Rick Perry served as governor of Texas from December 20, 2000 to January 20, 2015.

James Richard "Rick" Perry was the 47th governor of Texas. He was born on March 4, 1950 in Haskell, Texas to Joseph Ray Perry and Amelia June (Holt) Perry. In 1972, he received a bachelor's degree in animal science from Texas A&M University. Perry then served as a pilot with the United States Air Force from 1972 to 1977 and was discharged in 1977 with the rank of captain. Perry was elected to the Texas House of Representatives (District 64) as a Democrat in 1984 and served until 1990. He was named one of the 10 most effective lawmakers by the Dallas Morning News in 1989. In the same year, Perry changed his party allegiance, becoming a Republican. Perry left the House of Representatives to serve two terms as Texas Commissioner of Agriculture, from 1990 to 1998. He was a member of the U.S. Trade Representative's Intergovernmental Policy Advisory Committee on International Trade; the Executive Committee, Southern U.S. Trade Association; and president of the Southern Association of Trade Departments of Agriculture (from 1992 to 1993). He was elected lieutenant governor in 1998, taking office in January of 1999. Perry became governor to complete the term of Governor George W. Bush who left the office in December 2000 to become president of the United States. Perry was elected governor of Texas first on November 5, 2002 and then reelected on November 7, 2006 and November 2, 2010.

As governor, Perry focused primarily on issues of economy, education, and security, especially along the Texas-Mexico border. He espoused fiscal conservatism, opposing a state income tax and focusing on job growth and business incentives throughout his governorship. As the longest serving Texas governor, Perry capitalized on the main power assigned to him by the Texas Constitution, appointing the majority of sitting members of every state board or commission. In the field of healthcare, Perry signed several bills governing abortion procedures and funding. Perry issued an executive order mandating that all Texas girls receive the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine on February 2, 2007. The order was overturned by the state legislature the following August.

On August 13, 2011, Perry announced he would be running for president in 2012. However, after a controversial campaign and a low showing in the Iowa caucuses, Perry dropped out of the presidential race on January 19, 2012. Perry later ran for president again, announcing his candidacy for the Republican nomination in the 2016 U.S. presidential election on June 4, 2015. He officially suspended his campaign on September 11, 2015.

On August 15, 2014, Perry was indicted by a grand jury on felony charges for abuse of power. The indictment specifically included two charges: abuse of official capacity (a first-degree felony) and coercion of a public servant (a third-degree felony). Perry was accused of coercing Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg (who had been convicted of drunk driving) to resign by threatening to veto funding for the Public Integrity Unit, a group of state public corruption prosecutors. His defense maintains that these actions were within the scope of the gubernatorial powers. The indictment for coercion of a public official was dropped on July 24, 2015. As of September 2015, judgment regarding the other charge is still pending.

Perry married Anita Thigpen in 1982. They have two children, Griffin and Sydney.

Casey J. Monahan Biographical Sketch

Casey Monahan is a Texas-born musician, writer and photographer who was director of the Texas Music Office from 1990 to 2015. Raised in Houston, Monahan graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May 1983 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Government. Monahan was a music writer and research analyst for the Austin American-Statesman from 1985 to 1990. In his capacity as a journalist, Monahan wrote hundreds of articles on country, folk, rock & roll and music business, and photographed over 400 performances for publication. In addition to his work with the Statesman, Monahan's articles and/or photographs have appeared in Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Rolling Stone, Music Library Association Notes, the New York Times, Pulse!, Texas Monthly, Southwest Spirit, Third Coast, the Dallas Morning News, and the Austin Chronicle.

While he was TMO director, Monahan remained active in the Texas music community in a number of other roles.

Music media, 1985-2014, undated, bulk 2005-2012
The Texas Music Office of the Texas Governor's Office is a state-funded business promotion office and information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry. Records consist of recordings of musical performances sent to the TMO, dating 1985-2014, undated, bulk 2005-2012. Types of records include audiocassettes, videocassettes, CDs, CD-ROMs, and DVDs. These items appear to have been sent to the TMO to introduce the music to staff, so that they might evaluate it and publicize it to producers, distributors, venue owners, and other members of the music industry. The videocassettes and DVDs are copies of televised programs or music-focused documentaries made by a number of groups including BBC Scotland, CNN, and PBS. Most were likely sent to the TMO for promotional purposes, though several of the videocassettes appear to be production-grade copies used for televised broadcast. The subseries Subject files and General correspondence within the series Project files may contain correspondence or reference materials about music or musicians featured.
The audiocassettes and compact discs are split into two categories: demo and promotional. Demos are items that appear to be home or small studio-recorded submissions sent to TMO by individual artists for the purposes of publicity, evaluation or securing representation or distribution. The materials have clearly non-professional packaging, and do not have recognizable copyright markings. The promotional category includes items that appear to have been sent out by distribution companies or professional musicians, and feature professional, mass-produced packaging that usually appears to be designed for retail sale. There are also clear copyright markings.
Arrangement
Videocassette, DVD, and CD-ROM records are arranged by format, then alphabetically by creator. Audiocassette and CD records are arranged by format, then by status as demo or promotional items, then alphabetically by creator.
Preferred Citation
(Identify the item), Music media, Project files, Texas Music Office records, Texas Governor Rick Perry records. Archives and Information Services Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Restrictions on Access
Because of the possibility that portions of these records fall under Public Information Act exceptions including, but not limited to, home e-mail addresses (Texas Government Code Section 552.137) and other information protected under common law privacy (Texas Government Code, Sections 552.101). Refer to the overall restriction statement for instructions on requesting access through the Texas Attorney General.
Restrictions on Use
A large portion of the materials in this subseries have been formally copyrighted by their creator, and researchers must comply as such. The remainder of the materials are demo recordings that were produced under informal circumstances and sent to the TMO. These recordings may not be under copyright, though the researcher is strongly advised to contact the creator to determine the legal status of their work.
Accession Information
Accession numbers: 2015/067
These records were transferred to the Archives and Information Services Division of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission by the Office of the Governor on December 19. 2014 thru March 2015.
Technical Requirements
Researchers wishing to access videocassettes, audiocassettes, CDs, CD-ROMs, or floppy discs must contact Archives staff to obtain the necessary equipment. The Archives may not have the correct audio-visual equipment to access U-matic videocassettes. Please contact Archives staff for more information.

Texas music industry survey data, 1998, 2010,

The Texas Music Office of the Texas Governor's Office is a state-funded business promotion office and information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry. Records consist of the results of a survey set on the Texas music community given by the TMO to two distinct groups: musicians, and music-related business owners, dated 1998. Each group received a particular survey tailored to their occupation, which is included with each set of results, which are anonymous. Results are by individual respondent, with some answers in number code, the key to which is provided in the corresponding questionnaire. The survey questions focus on financial issues, including employees and salaries paid, assets, liabilities, revenue sources, and expenses. Other questions focus on musical genres, professional association membership, the general state of the Texas music industry, and how the state government can assist the success of Texas music. See the subseries Project files, Staff files concerning Casey Monahan for further materials on the survey.
The electronic files consist of an executive summary of the survey results, and a full transcription of the long-form respondent comments on the state of the industry as well as how state government can help. The anonymous comments are marked by professional position and geographical area. Common points of emphasis include low pay for performances, lack of commercial radio air play, noise ordinances, promotion, and music venues. The comments often use examples from personal experience and circumstances to support their arguments.
Formats of the original electronic files include word processing or plain text files (.doc) and PDFs. Digital files presented for public use will generally be PDF for text documents. Files in their original format are available on request, restrictions may apply.

121 MB (147 files)

The Texas Music Office (TMO) of the Texas Governor's Office is a state-funded business promotion office and information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry. TMO photographs include images of performances, award ceremonies, conferences, group portraits, and portraits of staff members and members of the music community, dating 2004-2011. One folder contains seven photographic files documenting a speaking event involving the TMO and the Austin Asian American Chamber of Commerce that probably took place in 2011. A substantial portion appear to document a TMO staff visit to George Strait at his ranch in La Salle County, though the exact location is unclear. In addition, events attended by Texan musicians Billy Joe Shaver and Ornette Coleman are well documented.
Relatively little description of the images is available; file names sometimes identify participants or events to varying degrees of clarity, but little else. Otherwise, file names are often number sequences assigned by the camera or photographer, the significance of which is currently unknown. For photographs and other media generated by the Press Office under Governor Rick Perry, see the separate finding aid Governor Rick Perry Press Office media files.
