Michael Williams backs Christi Craddick
"I’m proud to support Christi Craddick for Texas Railroad Commissioner. As its former Chairman, I’m certainly aware of the many diverse issues that come before the Railroad Commission. The Texas Railroad Commission remains the leading energy regulatory body in the country. Christi’s diverse background, impressive resume, and conservative principles have prepared her to meet these challenges and to be a strong leader for Texas."
Today, I am honored to add to our growing list of supporters former Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Michael Williams.
Michael served on the Commission from 1992 until 2011, over two full terms. Former Commissioners Charles Matthews and Barry Williamson gave my campaign their support earlier in the year. The addition of Michael and his network of supporters will be invaluable to our campaign. Having the counsel of over 30 combined years of service to Texas on the Railroad Commission will help me hit the ground running on my first day as Commissioner, should the people of Texas honor me with their vote.
Growing up in Midland, Michael and I both saw at an early age the important of the oil and gas industry, its affects on our economy and how the successes and failures affect many related businesses. We know having a strong energy industry in Texas is vital to creating jobs and growing our economy.
Michael also understands the importance of electing true conservative leaders for Texas. He has spent his life serving others, standing up for what is right no matter the cost and helping grow the Republican Party. His support of our campaign is an honor.
