Railroad Commission nominee Thompson takes shot at oil and gas industry
The Democratic Nominee for the Texas Railroad Commission Mark Thompson took a shot at the state's oil and gas industry during his speech from the podium. "Under the leadership of Republican Michael Williams, the Railroad Commission has allowed the oil and gas industry to exploit the people of Texas and damage the environment," Thompson said. He then followed that up with a litany of pipeline accidents and other environmental decisions he disagrees with.
