How do you plan to balance oil, gas, and mining interests with protection of natural resources and the environment?

Roman McAllen

Railroad Commissioner


Right now I plan to balance the commission. The current commission is entirely beholden to the industry. It is an open secret that commissioners accept campaign contributions 24/7, 365 days a year, from the industry. I will balance the commission by listening to and believing scientists, surface rights owners & municipalities and supporting them.  Current commissioners deny the science behind climate change. I do not and I will lead on the absolute need to move to 100% renewables.
