    GOP candidates for Texas Railroad Commissioner?

    I'm just starting to evaluate the candidates for these races and I have no doubt that some Shagsters know more about these people than I do. Any feedback you can offer on these races/candidates would be appreciated:

    Railroad Commissioner (Unexpired Term)
    - Barry Smitherman
    - Greg Parker
    - Elizabeth Murray-Kolb
    - Al Lee

    Railroad Commissioner
    - Roland Sledge
    - Christi Crad$#@!
    - Becky Berger
    - Warren Chisum
    - Beryl Burgess
    - Joe Cotten

    Since this thread got so much attention last cycle, I thought I'd revisit it for 2014. There's only one race listed on the ballot:

    - Becky Berger
    - Ryan Sitton (young Aggie that ran for State Rep in my district against Greg Bonnen last cycle; not sure that he has any qualifications for RR Commissioner)
    - Malachi Boyuls
    - Wayne Christian (I seem to recall him being a big fracking proponent, but my memory is hazy)

    Who is for curtailing use of eminent domain and applying appropriate restraints on fracking?

    He is now. OP is from 2012. Second post is for 2014 - hence the comment in the first sentence.

    Oh, and I was mistaken above in my comment about Wayne Christian. I got him confused with Warren Chisum, who ran in 2012.

    kevwun - how so? (other than being a woman /shag)

    Wayne Christian is the $#@! former rep from District 10 who got the Lege to restrict the Open Beaches Act so that he could rebuild his beach house after Ike (after removing the bodies from the trees on the property, of course). $#@! him.

    Who is for curtailing use of eminent domain and applying appropriate restraints on fracking?
    The answer is: probably none of them. Some might give lip service to the "gotta study the science" line on fracking, get elected, read that UT study back and scream "fire away!!!!"

    Berger has a website that I could have put together that lists her "positions" in this order for what amounts to this state's oil and gas commission: 1) pro-2nd amendment; 2) pro-states rights; 3) anti-government spending; 4) pro-border fence. Not a goddamn thing that holds any relevance to the office she seeks other than a pic of her on a rig from 2006. Worth. Less.

    Wayne Christian is at least a serious candidate, but I doubt he is going to be your guy either. His primary talking point are anti-EPA, stopping Obama's "war on energy", streamlining permitting and last, protection of private property. So, maybe he would limit some use of eminent domain, but his points don't seem too inclined to slow down fracking.

    Malachi Boyuls is an interesting guy, although I think he is playing up his connection to the industry. He is a lawyer by trade, and likely has some tangential connection to the industry, but not the production or regulatory side of it (maybe I am wrong). I have met him and he is a nice guy, young and energetic. His positions are all over the place. He is for more production, energy independence, safe pipelines, property rights, and environmental stewardship. Nevermind that those concepts are frequently anathema to one another. "Responsible drilling" still means less, not more. Increased production does not include more regulation, it would mean less oversight. So, it is difficult to pin down where he would actually come down. Probably where most of them always have.

    Ryan Sitton actually has the most experience in my mind as he is the actual President/CEO of a petroleum engineering firm. That said, he appears to hit the usual industry talking points: push back against federal regulations, energy independence, Obama's war on energy, etc. Not to mention is aggy.

    There. Not exactly an all star field. Christian is the favorite. I will probably pick Boyuls. The reality is that Christian, Boyuls and Sitton are probably all capable. Maybe Berger is, but that site screams crazy to me.

    Malachi Boyuls is easily the best candidate of that field.

    Not one of any of the current commissioners or the current candidates gives a $#@! about landowners.
